French is a well-recognised academic subject and also a genuinely useful subject that covers a wide range of skill areas ranging from communication, understanding difference and cultural diversity to citizenship, problem-solving and appreciation of the arts; enabling you to take your place in a multilingual global society. It therefore provides a broad base of understanding, through the medium of French, of a wide range of disciplines (sociology, politics, economics, world issues, cinema, history, literary appreciation). The course provides a transition from GCSE French to further study at university..
French is an engaging academic subject but also a real-life skill. Since its main focus is communication, French is very desirable to employers in today’s global field. Being proficient in a foreign language is a skill that will complement ALL other subject areas and skills.
