    Does Polish count as a 3rd language for college? Mateusz2001

    Hi, So currently I'm doing Irish (HL) , English (HL) and French (OL) for my junior cert but when I get to LC I want to drop french but for me to become a secondary teacher the colleges require you to have a third language. I'm Polish so would Polish count as my third language or does it have to be a language that is being thought in school? Thanks

      It has to be a third language in the leaving cert I'm afraid

      But I thought I can do polish for my leaving cert.

      Polish isn't on the Leaving Cert Syllabus.

      But there is a polish leaving cert exam. If you see the leaving cert timetable it's put down as "non curricular leaving cert exam" and there is also past polish exam papers so I don't understand why that wouldn't count as a third language

      I didn't know there was an exam but if there is and your a fluent speaker absolutely do it itll be easy points for you. I'd say it does if there's an exam for it ask the guidance counsellor in your school

      Extra cirricular means you have to do the subject in your own time not in school but you can still take the exam and it qualifies as a third language I believe.
