Course structure

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

Ym mhob un o flynyddoedd y rhaglen byddwch yn astudio ar gyfer 120 o gredydau. Byddwch yn treulio eich trydedd flwyddyn yn astudio neu’n gweithio dramor, un semester yn Ffrainc neu wlad arall lle siaredir Ffrangeg, ac yn yr Eidal neu wlad arall lle siaredir Eidaleg yn y semester arall.

The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the 2021/22 academic year. The final modules will be published by September 2021.

Year one

You will combine French with Italian, allowing you to experience more than one field of study.

In year one we run two pathways for students; an advanced pathway for students with an A-level or equivalent competence in French and Italian and a beginner’s pathway for students with limited or no knowledge of French or Italian.

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 France and Italy as nations, exploring what both countries have symbolised for different groups at different moments in history. It also explores France and Italy’s exchanges with the world, enabling you to explore France and Italy’s role beyond the national borders. Studies in these areas will enable you to develop a good understanding of intercultural awareness, and the highly-prized ability to mediate between cultures.

Year two

The language elements of year two build on the work undertaken in year one, and prepare you for your year abroad.

In addition to 30 credits French and Italian language, you will study 30 credits looking at France and/or Italy 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 both French and Italian looking at a range of topics such as culture, history and politics. You also have the option of studying 30 credits of Specialised Translation and Business Language.

Outside of your formal studies, you will have the opportunity to take part in our highly-praised Student Mentoring Scheme, which is supported by Welsh Government.

The scheme places undergraduates into local schools to mentor pupils and encourage them to consider modern foreign languages when choosing their GCSE options.

You may also choose to take part in the Student Language Ambassador (SLA) scheme, acting as an advocate 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 will be spent in France or another French-speaking country and Italy or another Italian-speaking country. The year will enable you to develop your language skills, deepen your understanding of the French and Italian culture and develop your independence, resourcefulness and resilience.

Your options for this include studying at one of our partner universities, working as an English assistant in a school, or working for a French or Italian organisation or company. 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.

Many students choose to study in some of Italy’s most inspiring cities, including Florence, Milan, Trieste, Verona and Venice. Others prefer to experience island life, working or studying in Sardinia or Sicily. For the French speaking part of the year, students have studied in French cities including Paris, Toulouse, Chambéry, Grenoble, Lyon, Clermont-Ferrand, Montpellier and Nantes while some of our students have spent their year abroad in Brussels, Geneva and Quebec.

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 French and 30 credits of Italian language, in addition to 60 credits of optional modules. 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 Student 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 module allows you to go into local secondary schools and teach pupils who are learning foreign languages. You will have the opportunity to observe teaching by professionals, take part in classroom activities and generate new learning materials. This in turn enhances your ICT, presentation, preparatory and organisational skills and, ultimately, your employability. Those students who wish to go onto a career in teaching gain valuable experience which can be used to feed into their PGSE application. These students also have the opportunity to take a dedicated (optional) training session for PGSE applications with an expert in the field.

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 cymysgedd 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.

Rydym yn ymfalchïo yn lefel y cyswllt sydd gennym â’n corff myfyrwyr, gan roi'r cyfle i chi leisio eich barn a bod yn bartneriaid ym mhrosesau gwneud penderfyniadau’r Ysgol lle bo’n bosibl. Rydym yn creu arolwg myfyrwyr yn rheolaidd i wneud yn siŵr ein bod bob amser yn gweithio ar sail yr hyn sydd orau ar eich cyfer.
