Edexcel GCSE Modern Languages
Languages for all
We believe languages should be accessible to all abilities, and want every student to have confidence in what they can achieve.
We have the widest range of languages at GCSE and A level, with high-quality free support and subject experts across planning, teaching, tracking, assessing and training ‒ all in one place. Our Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) qualifications, free support and paid-for resources are all designed with the same 'Languages for all' approach.
You've told us that you'd like support in a range of areas, from grammar and translation, to culture, to planning. Here you'll find an overview of all our support. We also offer training events to help get you started and share ideas for teaching strategies.
