This programme allows you to study French, Spanish or Japanese to a high level of competence. You can begin your degree-level study if you have A level or GCSE in these languages. For Japanese or Spanish you can also start from beginners level. To complement your core language learning, you can choose to study translation issues, or the way language itself works in society and the media. Alternatively, you can take the opportunity to acquire or enhance a subsidiary language.
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.
