“The conquest of learning is achieved through the knowledge of languages.” Roger Bacon
Spanish German French
More than any other subject being able to communicate in another language gives students an advantage in the fast paced job market after College or University. It is also a very valued A Level to have in an application to university or college.
However, as there is a big jump between GCSE and AS/A level standards this demands high levels of comprehension, fluency, grammar and extended vocabulary. Modern languages are demanding yet rewarding A levels. Palma College has a strong, enthusiastic Language Department with all teachers being native speakers. The teaching staff are all fully qualified in their respective languages at a university in their native countries.
The A level course for all languages introduces students to the culture, life, customs, youth-related and global issues in the target language and attaches high priority to spontaneous spoken and written work and is therefore challenging even for a native speaker.
You will improve both your employability and mobility with a Language A Level and they are extremely advantageous for university applications. Often a joint Honours Degree is more open to those who have a second language choice with their main subject, and students who do this often have the opportunity to spend a year abroad.
