Why study A level Afrikaans?
Learning any language is very rewarding and useful on both personal and professional levels. In today’s global society, an increasing number of people can speak in more than one language. Not only is this advantage in terms of travel and cultural appreciation, but it is also a desirable attribute sought after by many employers.
Choosing to study A Level Afrikaans will equip you with the fluency and accuracy needed to be able to confidently communicate in the language in both its written and spoken forms.
A typical A Level Afrikaans course will enable students to further develop their language skills in numerous situations. For example, over the normal two-year course programme, you could expect to become confident in reading texts, extracting information, initiating conversations and being able to answer questions in both verbal and written form.
The advantages of taking a language at A Level
As we have already mentioned, there are many benefits to being able to speak more than one language fluently. Universities and employers commonly view an A Level in any language other than English as strong evidence of your linguistic ability and understanding. Additionally, the work you will have put into gaining a language A Level develops lifelong skills, such as a strong analytical ability and a good memory.
