When applying to Huish, it was only at my interview that French became one of my course choices, because I was daunted by the spontaneous nature of the work. I am extremely happy that I changed my mind, and am now planning to continue my language study to university! Although there was a slight jump between GCSE and A Level, as soon as I started college my French improved, especially with weekly speaking tutorials, which helped my speaking skills immensely.
I’ve found studying French hugely enjoyable; we have varied lessons and a small, friendly class size, and there are competitions in translation and linguistics, as well as the chance to listen to French music and watch French films knowing that this is useful for our education. Language study at A Level touches on many different subjects as well as developing grammar and fluency, so they are very informative courses.
