The main purpose of this course is to offer our learners the opportunity to develop and extend a wide range of language skills which they have started to develop throughout their previous years of learning a language. In particular we aim to support learners in developing the ability to

  • read, listen, talk and write in a Modern Language
  • understand and use a Modern Language
  • apply knowledge and understanding of a Modern Language

In the Broad General Education (S1 and S2), pupils study their core language of either French or German.  In S3, they continue their core language and also have the option to study Spanish.  In S4 – S6, pupils can choose to specialise in their core language, and/or Spanish, whilst also benefitting from additional language opportunities in S5 and S6.
