S5 & S6 Modern Languages

These courses build upon previous language skills but within contexts which allow pupils to use the language in confident and flexible ways for either career or personal reasons. With the study of French or Spanish at Higher or Advanced Higher, students will be able to continue foreign language study at University level or to combine language studies with another subject at degree level e.g. Law, Business Management, Politics, Economics or Engineering. A Higher in a Modern Language also shows a breadth of study for those intending to apply for Medicine or Dentistry.

The content of the course will cover four main real-life contexts of Society, Learning, Employability and Culture.
