French

Why study French?

With an A Level in French you can go to university not only to study a language course, which could lead you to become a teacher or a translator, but also to add a specialism to your main subject such as International Law or Foreign Affairs. If you enjoyed studying French at GCSE level and would like to develop your language skills further then this is the course for you.
