      Learning French at Paston is fantastic! We cover a wide range of topics, so youre sure to find something of interest throughout the course. Ive enjoyed it so much. Emily Jenkins currently studying French and Management Studies at UEA.

      French is challenging but at the same time fascinating, and very different from my other subjects. Joe Delafield, current A2 Student.

      French is a challenge and a step up from GCSE but this makes it feel more of an achievement. Its a small class so you get lots of one-to-one time. Lewis Westlake, current A2 student.

      I find studying French at college fascinating. There are far more cultural aspects than Id imagined which dont get incorporated into GCSE French. They make the course all the more interesting. Freya Chaney, current A2 Student.

      You can combine French with almost any other subject. Studying a language will provide you with a good basis for further study or travel abroad. Many employers value language skills and, whatever other subjects you choose at Paston, a language qualification beyond GCSE will be an asset in the future.
