Language is fundamental to our thought, our relationships, and our civilisations. Through language we transmit knowledge, from inviting someone for coffee, to promoting the latest scientific theory, to settling global political disputes. Through Essex’s BA Language Studies, students will become proficient in one or more of the modern languages; French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese. These languages can be studied alongside the language expert modules which cover a range of cultural and professional skills. Most of the languages offer modules in all six different levels recognised by the Common European Framework, enabling students to study from almost any level of expertise. Of the four modules students take in their final year, they must be taken to Proficiency level (C1), and the other two must be taken to Intermediate level (B1). A year abroad is not compulsory on this course; however, students are encouraged to achieve an even higher level of attainment (C2) by taking a summer vacation course in a country where the language is spoken. Essex also offers a month-long summer course with fees paid for by Essex if the student starts a language from scratch via the intensive route.
