French at St Ambrose Barlow RC Sixth Form

Course description

Studying a modern foreign language is an excellent way to learn many valuable
transferable skills, whilst also allowing you to learn about another culture in
great detail. We aim to enable you to develop your language skills in order that
you may learn to communicate confidently whilst gaining an insight into the
contemporary life of the country.
The MFL department benefits from specialist teachers in all three languages,
modern, spacious classrooms and a wide range of texts and learning materials
and access to a Foreign Language Assistant. You will have the opportunity
to participate in a range of activities and trips including work experience in a
European country, email links to students, visits to universities and language
study days.
Future Prospects
Nowadays, as we are part of the European Union, an increasing number of
industries have an international dimension. An A or AS Level in a language
can help you take advantage of this. Some of our students might go on to
work specifically in a language orientated role, whilst others may find that their
chosen career requires close communications with a foreign country.
A high proportion of students will go on to study a language with another subject
such as Business or Law or may choose to continue their studies in other career
areas such as: Translator, Interpreter, Language Teacher or Trainer, Teaching
Assistant, Teaching English as a Foreign Language, Ambassador or Bilingual
Customer Services.
