Is there a definitive list of vocab for A-level Spanish? Or at least a minimum core set of vocab, like at GCSE? If not, how would I go about learning enough vocab to get an A* in the exam?

The best thing to do is have a look at the specification - it will tell you either what you need to know or roughly topics that you need to know the vocab for

Ah okay, thank you! Do you have a rough idea of how many words you would need to learn for each topic?

I don’t do a mfl, so I have no idea, sorry. The best person to contact is your teacher who will be able to give better guidance

I don’t think there is a definitive list like there is at GCSE. I did A level French and my teacher recommended the book mot à mot, I just looked the equivalent Spanish one would be ‘palabra poor palabra’but that’s for AQA, don’t know how useful that would be for you

ETA- found a edexcel one, have a look

Hola,

The same vocab list doesn't exist for A level Spanish I'm afraid but I would look at the 'glosarios' in the Edexcel textbook (it's likely you'll be studying it) and you'll see the list there. This isn't an exhaustive list as you'll be picking up more words from articles, reading comprehensions, teacher handouts/booklets and other interactive resources!

Buena suerte

I know for AQA there isn't a list but for each topic there's lots of quizlets covering most of the vocab required for that topic
