Italy is famous for its artistic heritage, design, music, fashion and food. The language is one in which rapid progress can be made in the early stages simply because such a high percentage of English vocabulary derives from Latin. Classes also tend to be smaller and this enables you to have more individual teaching to help you progress. You do NOT need Italian GCSE to enrol on the course. For students who really are keen and enthusiastic about languages, Italian can be studied from scratch. However, this is an intensive course and students must be good linguists, highly motivated, hard-working and organized in order to keep up with the fast pace of the course. This A-level will enable you to:
- Develop skills in a new foreign language very quickly.
- Communicate confidently, clearly and effectively in the foreign language
- Develop insights into the culture of the country
- Study a subject that combines well with many other subjects
- Develop skills that are highly valued by employers and universities
- Take part in an exchange trip
