This programme allows you to study French, Japanese or Spanish to a high level of competence. This three-year variant is for those who have obtained A grade at A level or its equivalent in the language. 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.
In all of these activities, the materials we use are contemporary rather than literary or historical. Alongside developing language competence, you will learn about the role of language and translation in today’s global communication networks.
The spring semester of your second year is spent abroad at a university in a country where your honours language is spoken.
