Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics



We offer a range of outreach activities and resources to support school language teaching, to encourage school students to explore new languages and cultures, and to inspire students to continue studying a language to GCSE, to A level and in higher education.

Cambridge Collaborative A level Resources for Languages (CCARL)

Project Overview

CCARL videos have been recorded in the target language on texts set for French and German A levels, primarily to help support sixth form students whose education has been disrupted by remote learning during the Covid pandemic, and as a general resource for teachers.  

These resources have been created by independent researchers and colleagues across an international range of universities, including: Cambridge, UCL, Warwick, Cork, Princeton, Bristol, Reading, Edinburgh, Johns Hopkins, KCL, Queen’s Belfast and Zagreb.

To find out more or to view our CCARL videos, please click on the link above.

Please get in touch with us at if you have any questions or comments.


Why Not Languages?

Project Overview

We work in partnership with colleagues at the University’s Language Centre and the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies to promote and enhance language learning in schools. As part of our ‘WhyNotLanguages’ project we create resources and plan activities, which encourage pupils to continue with their language studies at GCSE, A-Level and at university level.

Please check back for resources for KS3, 4 and 5, which we hope will help pupils to recognise the importance and usefulness of languages, and to discover languages that they haven't tried before.
