  • A sound understanding of the nature of language and language study, and of the skills and abilities required for further study, work and leisure
  • Insight into the culture and contemporary society of countries where the language is spoken
  • Better integration into communities where the language is spoken
  • Positive attitudes towards language learning, towards the speakers of other languages, and towards other cultures and societies
  • Skills which can be used in other areas of learning, such as analysis and memory skills.

At A Level, students will sit exam papers in:

  • Reading and writing
  • Essay
  • Literature

There is also a speaking exam.
