This one year course will enable you to:
AS level is a natural progression from GCSE and many of the topic areas will be familiar to you. This will make for a smoother transition to AS and the topics are handled in a more mature and intellectually stretching way.
The course is organised into units:
As well as your lessons with your teachers you will have a timetabled lesson each week with the foreign language assistant in smaller groups to focus on speaking and listening. At the end of the course you will take two exams which will test your listening, reading, writing and speaking skills.
The second year builds on skills acquired at AS level. Grammar and vocabulary are reinforced and extended through the study of topics including: the environment, social and political issues. At A2 you study two culture/society topics in greater depth.
