Learning Journey



Key Stage 4

Examination Board: AQA
Being able to speak a foreign language is a valuable skill for your career as well as your leisure time. A GCSE in a language will set you apart from many other school leavers in the country. You will learn to understand, speak and write the foreign language well. You will have opportunities to express your opinions, and to learn about life in other countries. The work builds on your achievements so far at Key Stage 3 - in fact you have already covered some Foundation Level GCSE work, and Universities are increasingly favouring applicants with a Languages GCSE.

Assessment: Each of the four skills will be tested and all exams take place at the end of Year 11. Your teacher will conduct the Speaking test.Progression: You can study French at A level. The Language learning skills you develop will also help you to learn other languages. Languages are important in a wide range of jobs as more companies and professions operate in a global market.
