A rich choice of well-known popular and accessible books and films, covering contemporary and classic works which will motivate and engage your students. Themes that provide clear links to fundamental and interesting aspects of the culture of the target language country and communities.

Our content builds on the understanding developed at GCSE, enabling students to make a smooth transition to the next level of study.

We are working closely with teachers and students to ensure that our content builds on the understanding developed at GCSE and is flexible for co-teaching AS and A level so there is time to cover what you need to, at the appropriate depth.

What's changing

AS and A Level Languages 2017: What's changing

These changes will apply to all awarding organisations’ specifications:

  • A levels will now be fully linear, with students sitting their exams at the end of the two-year course. AS students can go on to take the A level in Year 2, but the AS qualification will not count towards the A level.

    The new Assessment Objective around knowledge and understanding of the target language culture means students will need to demonstrate this in the Edexcel specification in the Speaking and Writing components.
  • Compulsory themes: social issues and trends, political and/or intellectual and/or artistic culture.
     
  • Set literature at A level (choice of text or film at AS). All assessed through a target language essay.
     
  • An independent research project at A level which will be assessed within the Speaking exam.

These conditions are still in draft and are currently being finalised by Ofqual.
