Alongside the current offer of AS/A2 French (through Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth 1st College) and Dutch, the college is now a registered Asset Language Centre and is launching an expanded language programme.
A survey at the college identified that students speak over 50 languages and would like to be able to develop and gain academic credit for these, as well as wanting to learn skills in languages such as French, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic and Gujarati.
Students will be able to gain qualifications in Speaking, Reading, Listening and Writing skills at a range of levels from Beginner to Expert, alongside their other qualifications.
Regent College celebrated the 2007 European Day of Languages with two events organised and run completely by Extended Project students. During the day, students and staff took part in a languages treasure hunt and in the evening, gathered in the studio to join in with the first annual Eurovision Karaoke Contest. Proceeds from these events went to the charity ICan which works with children with communication difficulties.
