GCSE Modern Languages - Exam Information


Course Content

To begin IGCSE, students must have studied their chosen language(s) through to Year 9.

Students study at least one Modern Language to IGCSE and many of our students choose to study two. During the IGCSE course students become well equipped for using the language in real situations abroad. They build a strong basis towards fluency together with a firm grasp of cultures associated with the languages taught.

Topics covered are directly relevant to our students’ own lives and range from “home and family”, “leisure and hobbies”, “education and the world of work” to “region and environment”.

We secure strong results in each language and, subsequently, our students are very well prepared for Pre-U study in one or more languages.

Course Structure

IGCSE Modern Languages courses have no coursework and the linear course assesses the four language-learning skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) in a balanced way.
