Spanish IGCSE

Student using a computer to Listen to Spanish

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.

The OHS course is designed to match the Edexcel 4SP0 (2018) and the 4SP1 specification from 2019 and is divided into five modules, as follows:

  • About me
  • Day to day life
  • Holidays and travel
  • Modern life
  • Speaking and listening skills

There is also a CD designed to support you in your speaking and listening skills.

Assessment is by two written and one speaking examination. Paper 1 (Listening) lasts 45 minutes and Paper 2 (Reading and Writing) lasts 1 hour 30 minutes.

Spanish IGCSE and Home Education FAQs

Oxford Home Schooling’s Spanish IGCSE course is designed to prepare students for the Edexcel IGCSE in Spanish (4SP0) for  examination in June 2018 and the Edexcel IGCSE in Spanish (4SP1)  exams in 2019 or later years.


When you start your course with us you will agree an examination date or dates with your Student Adviser.  Your support period is then up to this examination date.

Whilst you do not need to possess any Spanish qualifications to study the IGCSE it is not a complete beginners course. It is necessary to have some prior knowledge of Spanish before beginning the courses. It is also advantageous if you have access to a Spanish speaker for additional practice with the spoken aspect of the course.
