Lower Secondary Spanish

The benefits of studying Secondary Spanish

Our Lower Secondary Spanish homeschooling course (English National Curriculum Key Stage 3) is an ideal preparation for IGCSE Spanish studies.

Over 450 million people speak Spanish worldwide, with some 21 countries having Spanish as their official language. So, you can see how important it is. Studying this course will help your child to get to know Spanish speaking countries, and to understand their peoples and their culture. Learning Spanish will open your child’s mind to new ideas and new ways of looking at the world. It will greatly expand their possibilities for travel and future work abroad.

I compared several homeschooling providers and decided on Wolsey Hall Oxford because I felt confident about the help and care my daughter Aeshya would receive. The support we receive is excellent, and the Tutors are very patient. I would recommend Wolsey Hall to parents who care, not only about grades, but about the study experience as a whole. Students receive the respect they deserve and they get the encouragement to move forward despite sometimes having difficulties.
