Course Descriptions

A Level (A2) / Power A Level (A2)

Power A level (A2), IB, Leaving Cert Revision

This is our optimum course for these important last year exams.

Students combine our standard revision course with an extra one to one lesson each day. In these they can focus on their own areas of need, be it becoming fluent in their chosen themes, clearing up grammar points they are unsure of or simply getting more Spanish talking time to gain confidence.

This course means candidates nail their Spanish revision during their half term or Easter holidays guaranteeing themselves the top grades they need for their conditional offers and freeing them up to focus on their other subjects. It is also the ideal choice for Pre U candidates.

A Level (A2), IB, Leaving Cert Revision

Focus is on general exam topics and candidate's chosen themes, familiarising them with the arguments and language so they can deliver a polished oral performance and produce articulate correct prose. A thorough preparation which leaves candidates feeling their revision is sorted.

AS / Power AS

Power AS

This is our optimum course for AS exam preparation.

Students combine our standard revision course with an extra one to one lesson each day. In this they can focus on their own areas of need, be it clearing up grammar points they are unsure of or simply getting more Spanish talking time to gain confidence.

This course means candidates cover much of their Spanish revision in the holidays, and are guaranteed a top grade freeing them up to focus on their other subjects. Their increased confidence often convinces them to carry on with Spanish to A level, if they have not already done so. And their excellent exam result is of great importance for their University applications.

AS

Focus is on the demands of the exam syllabi, with special emphasis on speaking and writing.

It's very common that students not planning on continuing with Spanish to A level gain so much confidence during this course that they change their minds.

GCSE / Power GCSE

Power GCSE

This is our optimum course for GCSE exam preparation.

Students combine our standard revision course with an extra one to one lesson each day. In this they can focus on their own areas of need, be it clearing up grammar points they are unsure of or simply getting more Spanish talking time to gain confidence. Often for these younger learners this course is a game changer as they go back to school full of confidence and seeing Spanish as something relevant, fun and accessible.

GCSE

Younger learners' time is spread so thinly so they really appreciate having their Spanish sorted for them. The results of the 20 hours really show, and it is also a marvelous growing up experience, navigating travel, adapting to a homestay and making new friends, all under ISLA's watchful eye.

Courses during all half terms and holidays and there is a pre-term A level and AS revision course from Jan 2 - Jan 6 2017.
