What Kind Of Person Studies This Course? In addition to being an obvious choice for those students who are keen and able linguists, an AS or A Level in French or German is an excellent companion subject for those taking Sciences and Humanities because it is a much sought after skill in the world of work. British companies are notoriously short of speakers of foreign languages and are actively seeking employees with qualifications not only directly related to their business, but who can offer additional skills. It is also possible to study two languages if you have done so to GCSE. Where Will An AS/A2 Level In French Or German Lead Me? Careers most often associated with languages include those in the travel industry, bi-lingual secretaries, translators, interpreters, marketing and retail. However, for many careers a language qualification, although perhaps not essential, can be seen as a desirable asset by employers. This is why many Universities combine a variety of subjects with language study, such as Law, Business and Management Studies, and indeed an increasing number prefer a language qualification on entry. Much of our trade is with Europe, especially Germany, and French is an international language on a par with English, being used as an official language by the United Nations. It is worth noting that 90% of the world's population live in a country where English is not the native tongue, and 60% of British trade is with non-English speaking countries. The ability to communicate in a foreign language sets you apart from the crowd and literally opens up a world of opportunities. Once you have mastered one foreign language, it is easier to learn another should the need arise.
