Languages at GCSE are a great experience because lessons are fun and enjoyable and you improve.
Students who understand the importance of developing their linguistic and cultural understanding, enjoy the challenge of communicating in another language and are interested in developing and deepening their knowledge of other cultures.
You will study themes from the following three contexts: Theme 1 - Identity and culture. Theme 2 - Local, national, international and global areas of interest and Theme 3 - Current and future study and employment.
Students will take part in a range of learning activities including: listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as acquiring a deeper understanding of the culture. A range of personal, learning and thinking skills which are essential to success in life, learning and work are also covered.
There are 3 terminal exams in the summer of the final year. Paper 1 is Listening and is worth 25%. Paper 2 is Speaking and is worth 25%. Paper 3 is Reading and is worth 25% and Paper 4 is Writing and is also worth 25%.
