This degree offers you the opportunity to gain a high level of proficiency in three foreign languages. In addition to an intensive language programme, you will benefit from Bristol's extensive range of cultural options, all taught by leading academic experts in their fields. Expertise in modern languages has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties throughout the world. The University of Bristol is one of the UK's leading centres for the study of modern languages and cultures, ranked 9th in the UK for modern languages and linguistics in the Guardian University Guide 2020. You will have the opportunity to study to degree level any three of the following languages offered by the School of Modern Languages: French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, Russian and Czech. An A-level or equivalent is required in two of your chosen languages, while the third is studied from a beginner's level. Please note that French cannot be studied as a beginner's language. You will gain knowledge of the key approaches and concepts for linguistic, literary, cultural and historical analysis. In your language classes you will develop speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation skills using a range of textbooks, media and internet resources. You will divide your third year between countries that are relevant to your chosen languages, including a language you are studying from a beginner's level. You will explore the culture and society for yourself while studying at a partner institution, teaching English, or undertaking a work placement.
