Course summary

Language is fundamental to our thought, our relationships, and our civilisations. Through language we transmit knowledge, from inviting someone for coffee, to promoting the latest scientific theory, to settling global political disputes.With 200 million speakers worldwide on five continents, French is one of the official language of the UN, the EU and the Olympics, so the Mastery level achieved on this course is valued in the public as well as the private sector. You’ll become highly proficient in French and will be able to study up to a further two of the modern languages taught at Essex, including German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese.These languages can be studied alongside the language expert modules which cover a range of cultural and professional skills.For most of our languages, we offer modules in all six different levels recognised by the Common European Framework. With two modules completed in French each year, you are expected to reach Mastery level in the language by the end of our course, and are also encouraged to gain confidence in one or two other languages of your choice. As well as gaining fluency in French, you become proficient in the broad range of its practical use, from professional translation to creative writing.If you want a global outlook, are interested in human communication, and want to study for a degree with real-world practical value in a world-class department, welcome to Essex.
