Languages can be combined with any other subject to add an international dimension to your studies and your future career. The rest of the world most definitely does not “always speak English”.
At university, the ERASMUS programme allows you to study for a year abroad at a European university – whatever the subject of your main course. Few UK students can do this, because they usually do not have the language skills; with an A level in a language, you will be in a much stronger position to study art in Italy or politics in Spain or law in France.
In addition to the Programme Entry Requirements:
Grade 5 in Portuguese
*(Native speakers to be interviewed by Head of MFL if they do not have a GCSE qualification in Portuguese).
Assessment is 100% listening, reading and writing.
