Modern Foreign Languages
If you’re planning to study a modern language such as French or Spanish at university, an A-level in your chosen language is, in most cases, an essential. For languages not so commonly offered in schools and colleges, such as Italian or Chinese, a modern foreign language is required or preferred. We offer A-Levels in French and Spanish at Haringey Sixth Form College and the possibility to take other Modern Languages A-Level exams as independent candidates.
You will be encouraged to develop reading, writing and speaking and listening skills through a range of educational visits, enrichment activities and lectures from native speakers. A-Level languages build upon your existing knowledge gained at GCSE, giving you a sound understanding of using your language in a variety of contexts and situations - at home, abroad, with friends or in the workplace. You will also be encouraged to study other A-Level courses alongside languages in order to broaden your career opportunities and university choices.
