Modern Languages GCSE
French, German or Spanish
You studied either French or Spanish for your first two years and were given the opportunity of studying French, German or Spanish as an additional language from the start of Year 9.
In Years 10 + 11 all pupils will be required to study at least one of the above languages to GCSE level. Proficiency in modern languages is becoming more and more important within the E.U. and in the world at large and could be an advantage to a graduate in the job market.
For the examination candidates are prepared for entry at Higher Level in Listening and Reading.
Reading centres on the understanding of public notices, menus, brochures, magazine and newspaper articles, etc.
Listening involves written responses to recorded material, the like of which you might ordinarily expect to encounter abroad. Speaking is internally assessed and the task could be an interview or a conversation drawn from a range of contexts.
Writing is externally assessed and you will have to complete two controlled assessment tasks where you have the opportunity to express and explain ideas and points of view, producing a variety of vocabulary, structures and verb tenses.
A key element in the pursuit of fluency and the real appreciation of foreign cultures is to visit the country of the language(s) that you study. Each department offers opportunities for exchange trips abroad.
So "Allons-y!", "Vamos!" and "Viel Spaβ!"
