Course Overview

Do you have a passion for languages? Are you looking to improve your spoken, written, and oral Spanish to prepare for A-Level study, enhance your next travel venture, or boost your business prospects in the international market? Then our Pearson Edexcel Spanish IGCSE online course is ideal for you. With the help and unlimited support of your personal tutor, you’ll learn how to communicate and understand the German language whilst exploring a variety of topics such as holidays and special occasions, daily life, and the environment.

You’ll develop your ability to speak and write coherently and confidently to communicate with native speakers, to listen to and understand Spanish speech, and to express and develop thoughts and ideas spontaneously and fluently. Speaking a foreign language is a mark of distinction highly valued by colleges, universities, and employers alike, as well as a sought-after ability in many professions, such as journalism, teaching, marketing, policing, and more!

Psychological studies have found that speaking a second language, such as Spanish, is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than those of single language speakers, and these differences offer a number of benefits including:

  • Improved listening skills since the brain has to work harder to distinguish different types of sounds
  • A stronger working memory than those speaking only one language. This helps with mental calculation, reading and other vital skills
  • The ability to switch from one task to another more quickly
  • Being better at your first language. It is said that you can never understand one language until you understand at least two.

Our Pearson Edexcel IGCSE Spanish online learning course is enhanced with lessons with a bank of resources, interactive tests and activities.  The course focuses on strands of learning within the curriculum to improve progression throughout, offering a seamless progression.

We provide learning resources that focus on assessment objectives and are organised by topic, allowing you to use them alongside our scheme of work.

The online course measures progression and assesses understanding with;

  • Enables students to build, apply and review their understanding with worksheets and Quick Quizzes..
  • Ensure understanding of the key concepts for the main topics with appropiate presentations.
  • Provides complete specification coverage with a list of learning objectives.

This online learning course  has been designed specifically to be studied online in your own time, at your own pace.
