Spanish IGCSE

Course Overview

The Oxford Home Schooling course is designed for students tackling the IGCSE Spanish examinations set by Edexcel. The IGCSE Spanish course is not designed for complete beginners; it assumes that students have some experience of the Spanish language. The first few lessons of the course are designed to provide individuals with an idea of the basic “building blocks” of the Spanish language and to prepare them for the IGCSE-style exercises in the rest of the course.

As well as preparation for the IGCSE Spanish exams, this course also aims to give students experience and confidence in a wide variety of Spanish conversational situations.
