**French** - At least two-thirds of our staff are native speakers, teaching you in French in language classes as well as most culture classes. - You will experience between 3 and 6 hours of French grammar and conversation every week (at post A-Level or beginners' level), in order to reach near-native precision and fluency. This will run in parallel with optional course units on French and Francophone history, politics, literature, popular culture and/or linguistics, from the Early Modern period to the present. - You will benefit from our long-established partnership with the Alliance Francaise de Manchester with cultural events throughout the year, such as film screenings, talks, plays, concerts, exhibitions and intensive language classes.- You will also benefit from our collaboration with the Institut de Touraine in the Loire Valley, which hosts Easter and Summer French language classes that are appropriate for complete beginners to finalists. - Our range and quality of courses are regularly cited for praise by external examiners and two colleagues have won University Teaching Excellence Awards.**Japanese** - You will follow a Japanese Studies curriculum through which you will learn about Japan-related topics in historical, linguistic, cultural, religious and other contexts, drawing on the wide range of research carried out by staff in Japanese Studies. - The course centres on a core framework in Year 1 but some choice of modules from Year 2 onwards will enable you to focus on particular areas of interest in the study of Japan and East Asia. - Japanese Studies at Manchester is taught by a diverse team of academic specialists in the field.- The course gives you the opportunity to build on existing knowledge of the language or study it as a beginner.
