Alongside your language skills you will develop your knowledge and understanding of themes relating to the culture and society of countries where the language is spoken, such as: family, the digital world, youth culture, immigration, art, cultural life and politics. You will study a literary text and a film which will link to the themes you cover and in the second year of the course you complete an Individual Research Project (IRP) on a topic of your choice.
