Why is it worth studying French GCSE/ iGCSE?
If a student has a passion for language this is the time to study it more intensely, and will give a superb grounding should the student wish to take A-Level French or go onto study it in higher education. This qualification could also lead to specialist employment opportunities both in the UK and overseas.
A French Degree will enable students to go on to study the language further, broaden their cultural horizons, and apply for employment opportunities in different countries. Potential job opportunities include teaching or lecturing, becoming an interpreter or translator, and could be useful if a student is interested in becoming an international aid worker, broadcast journalist, or for working in the tourism industry.
