We follow the AQA courses at A-level, where students expand upon their linguistic knowledge from GCSE, leading towards a much greater level of fluency. Students can study French, German or Spanish.
We encourage our A-level linguists to take part in a week’s European Work Experience placement, where they not only benefit from practising their language skills in a target-language country, but also gain invaluable firsthand cultural awareness and vocational experience.
Former A-level linguists of our department have gone on to enjoy successful careers in many fields, including finance, law, engineering, dentistry, human resource management and medicine amongst others
If I’m selling to you, I speak your language. If I’m buying, dann müssen Sie Deutsch sprechen.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.
Those who know nothing of foreign languages know nothing of their own
A man, who knows two languages, is worth two men.
