the Sixth Form
Students wishing to continue with their languages at a higher level, will find that most universities offer the chance to study languages in combination with all sorts of other subjects; from science to humanities as well as business, law or mathematics for example. Many courses, including those in the sciences, will offer students with good language skills the opportunity to take part of their degree course abroad. Graduates who offer a modern foreign language are in great demand and, in today’s global industry and multicultural society, employers are increasingly keen to recruit people with language skills.
St Anne’s offers A level courses in French and Spanish. In lessons we use authentic sources; students read newspaper and magazine articles, use the internet to access materials, watch films and listen to the radio, music and sound recordings. Language skills are practised in a supportive and encouraging environment. Speaking is practised continually, focusing on debates, discussions, justifying opinions and building on other students’ points of view. Through the topics studied, grammar is revised and built upon. Written work reflects the subject knowledge the students gain throughout the course.
Through this course students gain an insight into the society, culture and life of the countries where the language is spoken. The knowledge gained through the course will not only enrich students’ understanding of a variety of other subjects (including geography, history, politics and business studies), it will also heighten their knowledge of the English language by looking closely at language structures.
We will be teaching the new AQA AS and A2 French and Spanish courses. These courses have a real focus on the people, culture and countries. They develop the same skills as the previous specification but we will be studying different cultural topics. Both years develop speaking skills and translation.
Grade B or above in the relevant Modern Foreign Language GCSE required.
The course for both languages is formed of 4 parts each year;
AS/1st year of A2
2nd year of A2
• Social issues and trends • Political and artistic culture
