Upper School (IGCSEs)

IGCSE Spanish

Description

The International GCSE syllabus is great for pupils who want to learn about the Spanish language and cultureh. Students will quickly be able to speak and understand Spanish in a variety of common communication scenariois – see course content below. The teaching and learning is focused on the language skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing, and these are built on as students progress through their studies.

The course will also offer insights into the culture and civilisation of countries where Spanish is spoken, thus encouraging positive attitudes towards language learning and towards speakers of foreign languages. It is also the perfect preparation for further study at A Level.

Assessment

Teacher assessments are continuous during LIVE TAUGHT lessons, marking of coursework and assignments and summative tests.

Homework

Homework will be given at the end of each week, usually in the form of speaking, listening, and writing exercises.

Reporting

Parents have 24 /7 access to all of their student’s coursework. Teachers are available during term times to discuss student progress.

The syllabus content is organised around five broad Topic areas which provide contexts for the acquisition of vocabulary and the study of grammar and structures.

The course comprises 5 core topics designed to ensure students learn key vocabulary that is useful in everyday life contexts.

The 5 topics are:

  • Everyday activities
  • Personal and social life
  • The world around us
  • The world of work
  • The international world

To pass the course candidates must succeed in 4 assessment areas:

  • Paper 1. Listening
  • Paper 2. Reading
  • Paper 3. Speaking
  • Paper 4. Writing

Parents are responsible for arranging their child’s examinations at their local registered examination centre. Cambridge Home School students study from every part of the globe and so it is not practical for the school to offer a single venue to sit examinations.. Consequently Cambridge Home School is not registered with Cambridge International Examinations but has partnerships with examination centres registered with Cambridge International Examinations, Edexcel, OCR, AQA and will support students in locating a suitable venue for sitting their written and practical examinations.

Recorded lessons produced by Cambridge Home School based in Cambridge UK – probably the best online school in the UK
