Modern Language - 3 year option

As well as developing your language competence, you’ll take modules that explore the role of language and translation in today’s global communication networks.    The language-learning element of your degree will involve translation from and to English, reading and listening comprehension, précis and paraphrase work, the study of different styles and registers, lexical exercises and oral work.    Since presentation skills are vital in the contemporary work environment, you’ll focus on vocal and physical projection, developing poise and managing nerves. You’ll also practice speaking from notes, improvisation, and being able to structure arguments coherently.    In all of these activities, you’ll use contemporary rather than literary or historical materials.    You’ll also have the opportunity to take another language as part of your degree or as a non-credit module with certification at no extra cost. You can choose from Arabic, British Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Advanced English.    **Course Structure** **Year 1** With a combination of compulsory and optional modules you’ll be introduced to key themes in the study of language, culture, and intercultural communication. You’ll also investigate language and culture with topics related to your chosen language.    **Year 2** The spring semester of your second year will be spent at a university in a country where your chosen language is spoken. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to be immersed in the language, become familiar with what it is like to study abroad and to boost your employability. You will be advised and supported by our study abroad coordinators to ensure you spend your semester at the partner university which offers the most relevant taught subjects for you. At the same time you’ll hone your skills of academic enquiry and argumentation. You’ll be able to choose from topics such as subtitling and dubbing; the French language today, reinterpreting 21st century Spain, Japanese popular culture, and contemporary Japanese society.   **Year 3**  As well as high-level language acquisition modules, you will have the opportunity to pursue specialised topic options, including translation, in the area of either French, Spanish, or Japanese enabling you to extend your control over sophisticated language. You can also choose from a range of optional translation, intercultural communication, media and society modules or investigate a subject of your own choice in more depth in a dissertation.       **Disclaimer**  Course details are subject to change.
