French is offered at A-Level. The new GCE A levels in languages will be introduced for first teaching from September 2016. This will mean following a course through for two years and doing an exam in May/June 2018. A Level modern foreign languages are assessed in a range of skills, including listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammatical skill and translation. You will build on the language and skills you have established at GCSE, whilst developing the ability to communicate spontaneously in the target language. The topics studied at A Level are more advanced than those at GCSE, and include aspects of modern French-, German- or Spanish-speaking society, current trends and issues, artistic culture, and politics. In addition, you will complete guided study of a literary work and of a film in the target language. Studying a modern language at A Level will prove extremely useful for students studying English & the humanities, since many of the themes and skills are shared between these subjects. Languages are, however, also invaluable for those wishing to pursue careers in the sciences, ICT and engineering, since so much of these industries are based in more than one country. Proficiency in one or preferably more modern languages is increasingly seen as an essential skill in most areas of higher education and will be vital for securing good jobs in the global and expanding international workplace.
