French GCSE at Lincoln Castle Academy
Language is how we all communicate. If you have speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in a foreign language, the world is more open to you for business and travel. We study topics which would help you in day to day conversations and transactions. Studying a foreign language at GCSE will broaden your horizons, make you aware of cultural differences, media issues and give you the ability to communicate through both speaking and writing. A language will complement most subjects at varying levels but goes particularly well with English, Media, Business, Psychology, Sociology and History. These courses can complement any other Level 2 programme of study.
It is preferable for you to have studied the language at KS3. You must be prepared for hard work and show good time management skills.
A qualification in a foreign language combined with other skills opens up a range of careers both here and abroad. These include business, journalism, tourism, air cabin crew and teaching. Prospectus for some college and University courses state that a GCSE in a language is preferable as some courses include a year abroad.
