In a nutshell
Welsh as a second language is an enjoyable A Level which has been designed to encourage learners to study this language with interest, enjoyment and enthusiasm. Studying Welsh will greatly enhance your curriculum vitae and make you more employable!
This course is for...
... you want to improve your employability prospects in Wales
... you want to add another language to your skill set
... you want to study this language to complement any of the A level pathways
... you want to be able to understand and speak Welsh
There’s a lot of variety in the course, from studying Welsh films, Welsh history and culture, poetry and short stories, to social media and the Welsh language in daily life.
At A Level, your course will consist of three modules:
- CA4 - an oral exam in a group of three discussing a modern Welsh play studied during the year in class
- CA5 - a written paper in which candidates will discuss the Welsh language and its use in everyday life – in politics, education, the workplace and the media. This will be a continuation of the work done for the coursework in the AS course. Read an English article and summarise it in Welsh
- CA6 – another written paper in which candidates include grammar exercises based on responding to an email or correcting another person 's work; analysing the content and style of one of the four short stories studied in class; discussing a theme in the story which can also be found in other work studied over the two years
To enter this course, you’ll need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, including English Language, Maths/Maths Numeracy and Grade C in Welsh Second Language which may include the full or short course.
This course lays firm foundations for further study of the Welsh language at degree level, whilst at the same time developing skills suitable for the workplace.
