This Study Guide for CfE Advanced Higher Spanish from Bright Red will help you achieve success by taking you through the various challenges of the CfE Advanced Higher Spanish course. The Advanced Higher course will continue to build on the foundations laid down in Higher, so you need to ensure the basics are in place. You will see in this guide how topics can be integrated and how the topics are not prescriptive. The topic areas can be explored in class and at home but the main way to achieve success in CfE Advanced Higher Spanish is to develop the skill areas of Reading, Listening, Talking and Writing.

The book will take you through your work in one year leading to the examination. It should be used to complement the work that you are doing in class. It offers you a combination of exemplar material, grammar points and a guide to revision of the topics you need to cover for the exam. It will also talk you through some techniques for improving your work as well as giving you insights into exam techniques.

Your teacher will not be able to cover absolutely everything that is on the suggested list of context development, but you don’t need to worry too much about that. You will be given plenty of practice at developing your skills in reading, listening, talking and writing, and that is what counts. 

Our Study Guide for CfE Advanced Higher Spanish is further supported by audio files hosted on the Downloads tab above. 

Please note that some additional activities in this Study Guide are not currently available, as we are currently redevloping our Digital Zone, but we hope to be launching this fantastic resource soon.
