GCSE Italian helps students develop their Italian language skills in a variety of contexts and build a broad understanding of the culture of countries and communities where Italian is spoken. It encourages enjoyment of language learning and the recognition that language skills enable students to take their place in a multi-lingual global society. 

This four-unit specification requires students to develop their ability to write and speak in Italian and to understand Italian when it is written down or spoken. 

This qualification counts towards the English Baccalaureate.
