AQA GCSE Spanish 9-1 Exam

How to get top grades in GCSE SPANISH AQA

My name is Mar Herrero, I have worked in London as a Spanish teacher for over 10 years and I am the coordinator of the AQA GCSA SPANISH course developed by Learn Spanish Now. Our goal is not only that our students pass the exam with the highest mark, but that they develop a skill that will be a valuable tool throughout their lives. Making the experience as fun as possible, including cultural content that motivates and brings languages to life: as if they were in any city in Spain or America, but without leaving home.

We have created all the necessary resources to prepare and review all the topics included in the GCSE Spanish program, organizing them in friendly way, with an online teacher who will answer questions via email and keep track of the course and students’ progress  and individual tutorials to prepare speaking part of the exam or work with specific grammar questions.

Good news! Many of our activities have free access, so we will help you prepare for the GCSE Spanish exam even if you have not registered for our course. Learn more about our resources:

  • Video lessons
  • Grammar lessons.
  • Interactive online quizzes
  • Vocabulary flashcards
  • Mini evaluations
  • Past papers and specific exam preparation.



More than 30 free access grammar units, perfectly explained in English, with numerous examples, videos and hundreds of interactive exercises. From the most basic notions of Spanish grammar to the use of the subjunctive, they compile all the grammar you need to successfully pass the exam.



This course includes all the vocabulary needed to pass the exam. It is presented in flashcards with audios to become familiar with the pronunciation and  games to practice, so you can become easily familiar with all the vocabulary.

The vocabulary is organized in blocks related to the different topics of the exam, is a fundamental tool to successfully carry out all the parts of the exam and one of the skills that are most emphasized during the course. Learn how to use the GCSE Spanish Flashcards and access to some examples.


For our registered students, we have 15 mini-assessments, which will allow the tutor to check the student’s progress and discover in which areas more emphasis is needed.


Once all the work units are finished, we will practice new assessments and the skills required using past papers, so that the student becomes familiar with the exam and feels more confident.


All our tutors are highly qualified native Spanish teachers, who are perfectly familiar with the GCSE AQA Spanish program and have experience in online teaching, as well as a good command of the English language.

We will evaluate the real level of each student in an individual tutoring and we will do this for free! The tutor will then prepare a personalized learning plan and constantly monitor the student’s progress, identifying strengths and weaknesses, providing extra resources and explanations when they are needed. He/she will  also correct all the writing tasks.

The price for this service is £ 30 per month, or £ 250 for six months. In addition to the services of a personal tutor, this price includes access to the course’s premium resources: vocabulary cards, mini assessments, past papers


One-on-one tutorials last one hour and are conducted through Zoom or Microsoft Teams. They are designed to practice the speaking tasks of the exam, for which it will be necessary to use the grammar and vocabulary related to the topic, so it will be a general review.

An individual tutorial can also be booked when the student has problems with a specific grammar topic and needs to review it with the help of a tutor.

The price of each lesson is 25 pounds, 220 pounds if a block of 10 is booked.

So that you know us better, now we offer you an online tutorial, and study plan for one month, completely FREE, without the need for registration and without obligation, you just have to leave a message in the comments indicating us or send us a message.
