Description

OVERVIEW
This programme allows you to study a combination of two of French, Spanish or Japanese languages, to a high level of competence. You must have grade ‘B’ at A level (or equivalent) in at least one of your languages. You can begin study of your second language from A level or GCSE standard. For Japanese or Spanish you can also start from beginners level. Alongside modules to develop your language competence, you will take modules which explore the role of language and translation in today’s global communication networks.
The language learning element of your degree will involve translation from and into English, reading and listening comprehension, précis and paraphrase work, the study of different styles and registers, lexical exercises and oral work.
Since presentation skills are vital in the contemporary work environment, you will also focus on vocal and physical projection, developing poise and managing nerves. You will also develop the skills of speaking from notes, improvisation, and being able to structure arguments coherently.
In all of these activities, the materials we use are contemporary rather than literary or historical.
