Modern Languages

Brampton’s modern languages department is staffed by teachers whose expertise can rival that of any other department in the country, offering French, German, Spanish, and Italian. The department has a tradition of excellent A level results, and in French there is also the chance to take the internationally recognised DELF qualification at various levels.

The department is situated in its own fully equipped languages room, and students are encouraged to make use of its extensive DVD and foreign language book resources. Films, trips to foreign language cultural events, and all the resources of the internet supplement the highly individualised classroom teaching. Spanish students also normally spend a week on work experience in Spain. Students have in recent years gone on to study Spanish at King’s College, London, French at Oxford, Modern Languages at Manchester and Leeds, and various combined courses in Management plus a modern language.

Modern Languages Students

Anjlee Bakrania studied Spanish, German and Biology at the College. Here she tells us about her work experience in Spain:

“There are so many good reasons for doing this kind of work programme, I don’t know where to begin. First, you get to experience a culture totally different to our own. I chose to go because I love travelling, and it was an excellent way of improving my Spanish speaking skills. It gave me the perfect opportunity to strengthen my Spanish and it was a great way of making new friends. Valladolid is a great city that has a lot to offer students and visitors. It offers beautiful ancient architecture and fantastic history. Every street corner would lead to a church, and the people were so friendly. Overall, it was a great experience and I have many ‘recuerdos’ of this trip for years to come.
