GCSE Swedish

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by Dodros, Jun 3, 2009.

    Swedish is no longer offered as a GCSE subject by any exam board. It is, however, one of the languages "approved" by the QCA for accreditation purposes under the Practical (www.abcawards.co.uk/) and Asset (www.assetlanguages.org.uk/) Languages schemes.
    One alternative may be to consider a qualification accredited in Sweden. There's an interesting correspondence on the subject at
    http://www.thelocal.se/discuss/index.php?showtopic=1283
    accompanied with a dig at the state of school MFL in the UK.

    It is such a shame that some languages are not considered important enough to be GCSE subjects any more. I would have loved to have the opportunity to learn swedish at school.
    Many years ago I had a Swedish girlfriend so I picked up quite a bit.
    The 2 most important phrases I learned were:
    1) Min svävare är full med ålar. (This one made her laugh!)
    2) Jeg älskar dig! (This one made her very affectionate!)
