Modern Foreign Languages A Level at Brooke Weston Academy

Course description

This course seeks to extend and develop the four skills learned at GCSE, namely Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing. At the same time, and equally importantly, students are expected to develop their grammar skills and their knowledge of the societies in those countries where these languages are spoken and their understanding of the problems and challenges that these societies face. In this context, students will find themselves discussing such diverse topics as immigration and racism, Europe and the environment or wealth and poverty in modern Europe.

Future opportunities

In an increasingly globalised world, employers value not only the linguistic and communication skills, which are the backbone of the A Level course, but also the ability to understand other cultures and alternative ways of thinking, which is an integral part of language study. Modern Languages give graduates highly marketable skills and languages graduates develop careers in many sectors of the economy, including marketing, business and commerce, finance and banking, advertising, public relations, communications and transport.
