We offer both French and German at A level. Our aim is for students to feel comfortable and confident in expressing themselves and also to develop a high level of accuracy in both the oral and written language. An ability to study independently is vital for these courses. We also advise students to establish links with Germany or France in order to develop insights into the society and culture of the country.

The courses cover a range of interesting and stimulating topics, including:

  • Media and popular culture
  • Life style and relationships
  • The environment and contemporary social issues
  • Literature and the arts

A modern foreign language is highly desirable for many careers including travel and tourism, journalism, law, teaching, politics, commerce and trade to mention but a few.

Students are assessed through final examinations in listening, reading and writing as well as speaking.
