When looking for info online, on other languages and qualifications that you can get it showed that OCR offers only up to intermediate level of some of the languages also ends in 2013. Therefore Edexcel IGCSE is better it seems but I have no idea.
Do you or your DCs have any experience learning a Language that is not provided by the school, eg: http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications/by ... languages/
and if so how did you go about it and when did you start?
How long was the course?
What sort of qualifications did you go for? Is there any other alternative qualifications?
DS is in Year 7 & is learning MFL French and he'll be introduced to MFL German in Year 8 in school, so learning another language at the same time would be good I thought.
We hope for him to be fluent in the language, read, write, translate, grammar, literature and so on. A qualification will give him to work towards it and it will be properly done I feel.
I would like to get as much info as possible from you all please, experiences etc.. please help.
eg: Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, Cornish, Greek, Gujarati, Hindi, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Punjabi, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Swedish, Tamil, Turkish, Urdu, Welsh, Yoruba.
