Why study this course

Ein nod yn yr Ysgol Ieithoedd Modern a'r Ysgol Saesneg, Cyfathrebu ac Athroniaeth yw datblygu ac addysgu myfyrwyr i fod yn 'ddinasyddion byd-eang'.  Drwy astudio Sbaeneg a Saesneg Iaith, byddwch yn meithrin amrywiaeth o sgiliau trosglwyddadwy a gwybodaeth fuddiol i fyd gwaith, gan roi mantais gystadleuol i chi a’ch gwneud yn atyniadol i weithlu cynyddol fyd-eang ac agor drysau i amrywiaeth o lwybrau gyrfa.  

Mae gan Saesneg Iaith yng Nghaerdydd gymeriad unigryw. Cewch sylfaen gadarn o ran dadansoddi’r iaith y byddwch yn ei dysgu, a byddwch yn dysgu am arfau ieithyddol hanfodol megis ffoneteg, gramadeg a dadansoddi disgwrs, a hynny gan y rhai sy’n helpu i ddatblygu’r meysydd hynny. Gan fod gennym ymagwedd eang at iaith, fe ddysgwch hefyd sut y mae dadansoddi’r mathau o destunau amlfoddol (er enghraifft, cyfuno geiriau, lluniau a seiniau) a geir mor aml yn y cyfryngau cyfoes. Rydym hefyd yn canolbwyntio ar y cysylltiad rhwng iaith a diwylliant, cymdeithas, gwleidyddiaeth a meddwl.

Mae Sbaen yn wlad bwysig ar lwyfan Ewrop a’r byd, ac yn enwog am ddiwylliant cyfoethog a soffistigedig. Sbaeneg yw un o ieithoedd gwaith swyddogol yr Undeb Ewropeaidd a'r Cenhedloedd Unedig.

Yn ogystal â meithrin sgiliau iaith lefel uchel, byddwch yn datblygu dealltwriaeth ryngddiwylliannol fanwl sy'n cynnwys gwybodaeth benodol am ddiwylliannau Sbaen, a sgiliau cyfathrebu a meddwl yn feirniadol, sy’n meithrin gwytnwch ac annibyniaeth yn sgil yr amser a dreulir mewn cyd-destunau trochi mewn iaith dramor.

Rydym ni’n cynnig Sbaeneg i fyfyrwyr lefel uwch a dechreuwyr. Yn ystod eich blwyddyn gyntaf, yn ogystal â'ch gwersi iaith, bydd cyflwyniad i hanes a diwylliant Sbaen yn ceisio darparu sylfaen gadarn ar gyfer astudiaethau mwy arbenigol wrth i chi ddilyn eich cwrs.

Bydd eich dealltwriaeth o’r iaith yn cael ei datblygu a’i mireinio ymhellach yn ystod eich blwyddyn dramor, pan fyddwch yn cael profiad uniongyrchol o fywyd mewn gwlad Sbaeneg ei hiaith. 

Yn y flwyddyn olaf, byddwch yn cael cyfle i ysgrifennu traethawd hir, a fydd yn ysgogi menter a gall fod yn baratoad defnyddiol ar gyfer astudiaeth ôl-raddedig. 

Mae’n bwysig cofio nad astudio’r iaith yn unig rydych chi wrth astudio ieithoedd - mae’n cynnwys archwilio sawl agwedd ar wlad, a’n nod yw cynnig cwrs gwirioneddol eang sy'n cynnig modiwlau heriol ac ysgogol. 

Fel myfyriwr cyd-anrhydedd, fe welwch fod meysydd a safbwyntiau ategol sy'n aml yn cysylltu pynciau, boed yn ddadansoddiad beirniadol, yn gyd-destunau hanesyddol neu'n ymchwil ddiweddar. Ar ôl cwblhau’r rhaglen bedair blynedd hon, bydd gennych lefel uchel o hyfedredd iaith, yn ogystal â dealltwriaeth feirniadol o agweddau allweddol ar hanes, diwylliant, llenyddiaeth, gwleidyddiaeth a chymdeithas gyfoes Sbaen.

Course structure

Mae BA Iaith Saesneg a Sbaeneg yn rhaglen radd dros gyfnod o bedair blynedd. Mae wedi ei strwythuro yn y fath fodd fel y byddwch yn caffael cymwyseddau iaith ar lefel uchel i fod yn feddyliwr annibynnol a beirniadol, yn barod ar gyfer gwaith proffesiynol.

Ym mhob blwyddyn o’r rhaglen, byddwch yn astudio 120 o gredydau, wedi eu rhannu'n gyfartal rhwng 60 o gredydau mewn Saesneg Iaith a 60 o gredydau mewn Sbaeneg. Treulir eich trydedd flwyddyn yn astudio neu’n gweithio dramor yn Sbaen neu mewn gwlad arall lle siaredir Sbaeneg.

The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the 2020/21 academic year. The final modules will be published by September 2020.

Year one

You will combine 60 credits of Spanish with 60 credits of English Language.

The two core modules in English Language provide an excellent grounding in language description, analysis and interpretation, and in sociolinguistics. You will choose a third module from a list of options.

In year one we run two pathways for students; an advanced pathway for students with an A-level or equivalent competence in Spanish and a beginner’s pathway for students with limited or no knowledge of Spanish. The first year of this programme provides a thorough foundation in the grammar of the language for those students on the beginner’s pathway, and develops the linguistic skills for post A-level students on the advanced pathway.

You will also study a non-language module which introduces you to the development of Spain as a nation, exploring what it has symbolised for different groups at different moments in history. It also explores Spain’s exchanges with the world, enabling you to explore Spain’s role beyond the national borders. The module will enable you to develop a good understanding of intercultural awareness, and the highly-prized ability to mediate between cultures.

Year two

In year two you will again take 60 credits in English Language and 60 credits in Spanish.

In English Language you will take one core module, which covers all the essential elements of phonetics, grammar and lexical semantics (word meaning), building a common stock of knowledge and understanding.

You will also choose two options out a range of ‘foundation’ modules that provide engaging introductions to key areas of study in English Language. The training provided by these modules prepares you to make your choice from the more specialised, research-led ‘extension’ modules in year three. The language elements of year two build on the work undertaken in year one, and prepare you for your year abroad.

In addition to language, you will study 30 credits looking at Spain in a transnational context. This will introduce you to key approaches, methodologies and critical tools which you can apply to an in-depth study of Hispanic culture, looking at a range of topics such as culture, history and politics.

Outside of your formal studies, you will have the opportunity to take part in our highly-praised Student Mentoring Scheme, supported by the Welsh Assembly Government. Pupils in selected secondary schools are mentored by our specially-trained undergraduate students who go into schools to mentor pupils in small groups of two or three over a period of five weeks.

You may also choose to take part in the Student Language Ambassador (SLA) scheme, acting as advocates for language learning. Following specific training, as an SLA you may get the opportunity to speak publicly at events, sharing your personal experience of language learning. You may take part in a range of activities, such as language taster sessions, presenting and promoting the year abroad, supporting School language days and events, or promoting modern languages at career fairs or open days.

Year three: Sandwich year

Your third year is spent in Spain or another Spanish-speaking country. The year abroad will enable you to develop your language skills, deepen your understanding of the Spanish culture and develop your independence, resourcefulness and resilience.

Your options will include:

  • studying at one of our partner universities;
  • working as an English assistant in a school through the British Council Scheme, or
  • working for a Spanish organisation or company.

If you choose the study option, we have established exchange programmes which provide opportunities to study in institutions in a number of cities that have included Valencia, Barcelona and Seville.

Placements for teaching assistants on a scheme run by the British Council can take you to either a major city or a small, rural town. This option provides first-hand teaching experience and allows you to earn a salary sufficient to live on, although you only work on a part-time basis. Prior to the start of your placement, the British Council provides a training weekend in the destination country. In addition, the school you have been assigned to should also guide you in your role as a teacher and help you to find a place to live.

The third option consists of a work placement with an organisation or company in the Spanish-speaking world. The necessary arrangements can be made through personal contacts you may have or by approaching organisations directly. In order to ensure that your work placement affords you plenty of opportunity to speak Spanish and provides you with a beneficial experience, such arrangements will require prior approval by the School.

No matter what you choose, the year abroad is a great opportunity for you to improve your understanding of the language, immerse yourself in another culture, and gain international study or work experience. It is also excellent preparation for your final year and gives you a level of self-confidence and maturity that has proven popular with employers.

Any student who undertakes a study placement or a traineeship/work placement in Europe is currently eligible to apply for an Erasmus grant.

Year four

When we welcome you back to Cardiff in your final year, you will continue to develop your language skills, studying 30 credits of language in the final year and a 30 credit Spanish option module, in addition to 60 credits in English Language.

You will have the opportunity to build on the broad base of knowledge and skills you have developed to study an area of research expertise in the School, through taught modules and/or a dissertation. You will also have the opportunity to take part in our very popular teaching module, an accredited module where you will build on study and workshops at the University to undertake a teaching placement at one of our partner schools on the area.

The year four English Language modules are offered in the subject areas in which our staff are currently working, giving you a unique insight into some of the most up-to-date and innovative research and require you to gather and analyse your own data.

The final year dissertation module gives you the option to engage more deeply with a chosen topic area, as well as extending your research and analytical skills.

The University is committed to providing a wide range of module options where possible, but please be aware that whilst every effort is made to offer choice this may be limited in certain circumstances. This is due to the fact that some modules have limited numbers of places available, which are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, while others have minimum student numbers required before they will run, to ensure that an appropriate quality of education can be delivered; some modules require students to have already taken particular subjects, and others are core or required on the programme you are taking. Modules may also be limited due to timetable clashes, and although the University works to minimise disruption to choice, we advise you to seek advice from the relevant School on the module choices available.

Learning and assessment

Mae'r rhan fwyaf o'n modiwlau yn cynnwys cyfuniad o ddarlithoedd, seminarau a dosbarthiadau iaith sy'n eich galluogi i ddatblygu sgiliau cyfathrebu a dadansoddi, ac i ddatblygu meddwl beirniadol mewn amgylchedd cefnogol. Mae addysgu yn cwmpasu’r holl gymwyseddau allweddol, ac yn cael ei wella drwy gynnwys dysgu digidol.

Mae darlithoedd yn darparu trosolwg o gysyniadau a fframweithiau allweddol pwnc, gan eich paratoi chi ar gyfer ymgymryd â gwaith ymchwil annibynnol ar gyfer y seminarau a datblygu eich syniadau eich hunan.

Mae'r seminarau yn rhoi cyfle i chi ymgysylltu â syniadau allweddol yn feirniadol ac archwilio syniadau a amlinellir mewn darlithoedd mewn amgylchedd grŵp bach, fel arfer sy’n cynnwys tua 15 o fyfyrwyr ac arweinydd seminar (aelod o'r tîm addysgu). Gall ffurf y seminarau amrywio, gan gynnwys trafodaeth grŵp sy’n cynnwys pawb, gwaith mewn grwpiau bach a chyflwyniadau sy’n cael eu harwain gan y myfyrwyr.

Caiff dosbarthiadau iaith eu haddysgu mewn grwpiau i wella hyder a dysgu gweithredol. Bydd yr amserlen amrywiol yn cynnwys mynegiant llafar, dealltwriaeth wrth wrando a sgiliau ysgrifennu, a addysgir mewn grwpiau bychain er mwyn gwella hyder a dysgu gweithredol. Mae’r sgiliau cyfathrebu hollbwysig hyn yn cael eu hymarfer a’u datblygu trwy ymarferion gwaith dosbarth a gwaith ysgrifenedig rheolaidd. Mae ein dulliau addysgu yn eich galluogi i ymgysylltu ag amrywiaeth o dechnolegau dysgu iaith. Mae deunyddiau gan gynnwys gwerslyfrau, fideos, ffilmiau, nofelau, ffeiliau sain a gwefannau yn cael eu hategu gan adnoddau ar-lein sy'n ategu gweithgareddau’r ystafell ddosbarth ac yn hyrwyddo a hwyluso dysgu annibynnol. Mae deunyddiau dosbarth yn amrywio o destunau llenyddol a hanesyddol i destunau newyddiadurol cyfoes, gan roi cipolwg eang ar iaith a diwylliant.

Mae astudio’n annibynnol yn rhan allweddol o'ch gwaith dysgu, ac mae ein portffolios dysgu annibynnol wedi cael eu datblygu i ddarparu adnoddau ar-lein i fod o gymorth gyda’ch gwaith dysgu iaith yn annibynnol.

Mae gan bob aelod o staff academaidd oriau dynodedig pan fyddant ar gael i gyfarfod â chi i gynnig cyngor ac adborth ar y pynciau maen nhw'n eu haddysgu.

Yn ogystal, bydd tiwtor personol yn cael ei bennu ar eich cyfer, a fydd yn cyfarfod â chi'n rheolaidd i fyfyrio ar eich cynnydd a’ch datblygiad ar draws eich astudiaethau, ac i feddwl am sut i adeiladu ar eich cyflawniadau a hyrwyddo ymhellach. Gall y tiwtor personol hefyd eich cyfeirio chi at gymorth priodol os ydych chi’n cael trafferth.

Tra byddwch chi i ffwrdd o Gaerdydd, bydd Cydlynydd Blwyddyn Dramor yn cael ei neilltuo ar eich cyfer, a fydd yn cadw mewn cysylltiad â chi ac yn monitro eich cynnydd. Efallai y byddwch chi hefyd yn cael ymweliad gan un o’ch darlithwyr a fydd yn awyddus i gael gwybod sut hwyl rydych chi’n ei chael ar bethau.

Mae wythnos datblygu sgiliau bob semester yn caniatáu i chi astudio dan arweiniad ac yn rhoi cyfle i chi ddal i fyny ar waith i’w asesu, darllen ac adolygu. Defnyddir yr wythnosau hyn hefyd gan y staff i ymweld â myfyrwyr ar eu blwyddyn dramor.

Adborth

Rhoddir adborth ar eich gwaith yn aml ac mewn amrywiaeth eang o fformatau, a’i fwriad yw eich helpu chi i nodi cryfderau a gwendidau yn eich dysg, yn ogystal â rhoi arwyddion o sut y gallech wella eich perfformiad mewn arholiadau a gwaith cwrs.

Byddwch yn cael adborth cyffredinol mewn perthynas ag arholiadau ar ôl y cyfnod arholiadau a byddwch yn gallu trafod eich perfformiad cyffredinol gyda'ch tiwtor personol fel rhan o gynllun hunan asesu myfyrwyr sy’n cael ei fonitro.

How will I be supported?

Our BA programme in English Language and Spanish is team-taught, with the programme as a whole overseen by the Programme Director. You will be supported by a number of different staff, some focussing on academic performance in a particular area and some looking at learning and progress more holistically.

All academic staff have designated hours where they are available to meet with you to offer advice and feedback on the subjects that they teach.

You will also be allocated a personal tutor, who will meet with you regularly to reflect on your progress and development across your studies, and to think about how to build on your achievements and advance further. The personal tutor can also guide you if you are experiencing difficulties towards appropriate support.

While you are away from Cardiff, you will be assigned a Year Abroad Coordinator, who will keep in touch with you and monitor your progress. You may also get a visit from one of your lecturers who will be keen to find out how you are getting on.

A skills development week each semester allows for guided study and a chance to catch up on assessed work, reading and revision. These weeks are also used by staff to visit students on their year abroad. 

You will have access through the Learning Central to relevant learning resources, presentations, lecture handouts, bibliographies, further links, electronic exercises and discussion circles.

We pride ourselves on the level of engagement we have with our student body, giving you the opportunity to express your opinions and be partners in School decision-making where possible. We survey students regularly to make sure we are always working in your best interests.   

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, the Academic Skills Development Centre and excellent libraries and resource centres.

Feedback

Feedback on your work is given frequently and in a wide variety of formats and is intended to help you identify strengths and weaknesses in your learning, as well as give indications of how you might improve in your performance in examinations and coursework.

You will be given general feedback in relation to examinations following the examination period and you will be able to discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor as part of the monitored student self-assessment scheme.
