      What will I study?
      AS: The first year will focus on spoken and written language. In French, German, Spanish and Urdu topics will be Youth Culture & concerns, Lifestyle, Health and Fitness, The World Around Us, Education and Employment.

      Arabic will require much more study of societies where Arabic is spoken.

      A2: In the second year you will use more sophisticated language to discuss and study contemporary social issues, and study topics in your chosen language.

      How will I be assessed?
      Assessment will be through a combination of written and oral exams in each year.

      What can I do next?
      Language-related Higher Education courses are very popular and language skills are extremely valuable for employment, particularly in Business Administraton and Finance.
