Course summary

On our Modern Languages course, you can combine up to three languages from Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish (from beginners or advanced level) and learn Dutch and Galician. A detailed insight into these languages, developing written skills such as translation as well as oral skills, is complemented with a range of cultural. Together with the cultural and linguistic immersion of the year abroad, in this course you will gain a set of valuable transferable skills that will make you a multilingual and employable global citizen. All language modules include written skills (e.g. translation and essay writing) and oral skills taught by a native speaker. The flexibility involved in our courses means that you may be able to try out a new language during your first year. In addition, you may decide at the end of the first year that you wish to focus on one language rather than two, or two instead of three. In addition to what takes place in the classroom, there are lots of exciting opportunities for you to boost your language skills and increase your cultural awareness thanks to extra-curricular activities. LangSoc, our student-run society for students who are passionate about languages, runs a variety of cultural and social events. In addition, you can practice your language(s) with native speakers outside of the classroom thanks to our Language Buddy Scheme that pairs up Bangor students and incoming foreign exchange students. Bangor University’s Confucius Institute also runs regular events connected to Chinese culture. The Department of Modern Languages and Cultures is a lively, friendly and welcoming place, and we will do all we can to support you on your exciting journey as a student with us. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch. If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Modern Languages (with Foundation Year) R808.
