Routes into Languages Cymru and partner universities are offering a series of film, literature and cultural masterclasses for A level students. The workshops are designed to support delivery of the WJEC Modern Foreign Language curriculum and aim to improve existing levels of knowledge and understanding among students.

Through the analysis of key topics, such as main themes and characters, the workshops aim to strengthen the students’ comprehension and generate further discussion and thought. This event also gives teachers the opportunity to obtain information from the higher education lecturers whilst establishing links with the university.
