French A level at Eckington School

Course description

Here at Eckington School we are passionate about language learning and our team of linguists work hard to ensure that our students have every opportunity to be successful and enjoy the experience of learning French.

  • Not everyone in the world speaks English! According to the National Centre for Languages (CILT) 94% of the world does not speak English as their first language, 75% of the world does not speak any English at all!
  • Learning a foreign language develops a variety of skills  reading, listening, communication, presentation, problem solving, organisation and independence.
  • It can improve understanding of the English language as it heightens awareness of structure and grammar.
  • Language learning promotes tolerance as it offers an insight into other cultures.
  • It can make travel and leisure more exciting and interesting.
  • 60% of Britains exports go to non-English speaking countries and 20% of UK exports are adversely affected by barriers in language or cultural ignorance.

As the study of languages post Key Stage 3 is currently optional, we find that in Key Stages 4 & 5 we have small classes which benefit greatly from increased opportunity for one on one support from their teachers.
