French (AS/A2) at The Bewdley School and Sixth form Centre

Course description

 Closer integration with Europe means that foreign language skills are bound to become more important during your working life time, whatever people say about the spread of English as an "international language".

 In studying a foreign language you also develop communication skills and analytical skills which are useful in a number of careers.

Entry requirements

Minimum of 5 A*-C grades at GCSE level

You will have enjoyed taking French to GCSE and you are interested in communicating with people and seeing how language works. The emphasis at GCSE is very much on communication skills. At AS and A2, those skills are still important but you will learn to use more complex language and the emphasis will very much be on grammatical accuracy. You need therefore to have excellent writing skills and to have a good understanding of GCSE grammar if you are to do well.
