Has anybody self-taught language A Level after leaving school? watch

    • Thread Starter


    So I'm currently a 3rd Year University student. I took several modern languages as a child/young adult, Spanish, French, Russian, German, achieving GCSEs in French and German. I dropped out of French at AS Level (I was worried I wouldn't get an A and it would blemish my record).
    I lived in France for a few years and I regularly go back, so my French is pretty good B2/B1 level. In fact i'm doing a lot of translation work for my dissertation from French to English. I'm really hoping to improve it however, particularly as I am now living in an anglophone country again and have limited exposure on a day-to-day basis.

    My question is, does anybody have an experience with, or advice on, taking language A Levels after leaving school? I'd like to gain some qualification in languages and I was looking at taking AS/A level French as one avenue to do so.
