What will I learn?

**Course overview**- Our BA (Hons) Modern Languages course gives you the chance to study two languages – with an optional third later on. You’ll work on both formal and informal skills, not only developing academic knowledge of your chosen languages but also a practical understanding of how they’re used in real life – including in translation and interpretation.- The units you’ll study will help you look beyond the mechanics of language, by focusing on the social and cultural contexts – debating history, politics, film, literature and more. And, while a language is the ultimate transferrable skill, you’ll also have the chance to develop skills that will serve you well in professional life, from time management to team working.- You’ll learn in small groups, offering maximum interaction with your lecturers and plenty of opportunity to practise with our language assistants and your fellow students. And, whichever languages you choose to study, you’ll be part of a community of Modern Foreign Language students that studies, socialises and succeeds together.**Why study this course**If you are looking for a course that gives you the ability to communicate freely in Spanish and Korean, together with an understanding of cultural, political and economic contexts within foreign countries, the UCLan Modern Languages degree is not only a personally enriching experience but also develops your understanding of the recent history, contemporary society, culture and economy of the foreign countries. In this combination, Spanish is only available ab initio or post A level, and Korean ab initio. You could move on to a variety of successful careers in international business, consultancy, translation/interpreting, or worldwide teaching. Our graduates are enjoying careers in many international organisations including Merill Lynch, Reuters and diplomatic embassies.If studied over four years, your third year is normally spent abroad in the country/countries of the main target language on a work placement, a study placement at a partner institution or as a Foreign Language Assistant in a school. This will enable you to greatly enhance your language skills and improve your confidence when communicating in the language in the international environment.
