Why study French?

A-level language courses provide an exciting opportunity to develop your ability to communicate effectively with a broad range of people in our increasingly multilingual global society. You will gain a deeper understanding of world affairs, a better appreciation of other cultures and enjoy the stimulating challenge of studying a language.

The study of languages teaches valuable transferable skills in comprehension and communication, and helps with the transition to sixth form study in other A-level subjects.
