Why study languages?
The ability to excel in a different language is of particular interest to those wanting to work in translation, travel, teaching, broadcasting, journalism or any career in which the quality of communication is extremely important. The overlap in terms of course content with other A Level subjects is striking – the content links well to English Language, English Literature, History, Government & Politics, Law, Art, Music, Sociology and Media. Studying a language post-16 evidences your academic skills and commitment, your ability to acquire and develop a skill through regular practice and your fascination with different languages and cultures. An A Level language is an asset to an application for any degree level course.
