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 work units (let’s see all the topics), with an online teacher who will answer questions via email 24/7 and keep track of the course and its progress.

Our course includes:

  • 67 Simple work units to download.
  • Online homework and practice exercises.
  • Videos and audios on each topic.
  • Mini assessments following the exam style question.
  • 8 online lesson, via Skype or Zoom, to practice the speaking questions.
  • Exam advices


This course includes all the vocabulary needed to pass the exam. It is presented in lists and flashcards so that becoming familiar with it will be like a game (see some examples).

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.


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.

The tutor will monitor and encourage the student throughout the process, identifying strengths and weaknesses and providing extra resources and explanations when it is needed.


The student has to download each unit and practices with interactive activities. After each lesson section, he/she must complete a progress assessment and send it to the tutor, who will see if the student is making progress or require extra support in each area.

Once this step is completed, the student and tutor will have an online class to practice the speaking part of the lesson block.

The total price of the course is £ 380. Additional one-hour tutorials can be hired if required by the student.

Please, contact us with any questions you have about the course or about how to enroll, you can also get in touch with me We are looking forward to hearing from you.

¡Hasta pronto!
