Italian GCSE at The Sixth Form College Colchester
A one-year accelerated course for complete beginners in the language but who have significant interest andlinguistic ability. This course is suitable for students with a proven aptitude and interest in languages and is particularly appropriate for students who have already gained a B or above at GCSE level in a foreign language or who have a strong alternative background in foreign language learning.
It may be possible for some students who have not had the opportunity to study a GCSE foreign language to do this course, but it must be emphasised that a very high degree of commitment is required as grammar and vocabulary will need to be learnt on a daily basis. The course is taught in six periods per week. AS Italian will be available in Year 2 to those students who achieve a grade B or better pass. For very able linguists it may be possible to cover both AS and A2 units in Year 2.
These are one-year courses open to AS and AFP students and are normally 5 lessons a week. Most of these GCSEs are studied with the objective of entering students for the Foundation or Intermediate tier of the GCSE. Some subjects willenter students at Higher Level and this will be important if you are thinking of taking the subject to AS Level in your second year in College.
