As everyone who is involved in language education knows, there are many good reasons why learning a foreign language is important and beneficial to students’ careers, brainpower and social understanding. But again as we all know learning a foreign language takes time and dedication and it can be hard to convince pupils that persevering with it will benefit them in the end – especially when the foreign language has to compete with other subjects over inclusion in students’ GCSE subject lists.

To help persuade students to make a Spanish GCSE choice, I have created this resource that allows you to discuss the question of ‘Why learn Spanish?’ during your Spanish language lesson. There is even an extension activity, asking pupils to create a PowerPoint presentation that will convince others to take up GCSE Spanish.

Have you got any tips on how to convince your pupils to take GCSE Spanish?
