Foreign Languages: Referencing for Foreign Languages

A guide for students studying a foreign language & culture. This guide covers essential language learning & language skills resources, as well as additional resources for learning about other cultures.


As Language students, you will be asked to use the APA 7th referencing style

Why we reference


At university you are expected to reference information sources used in your assignments. Referencing is important as it:

  • gives credit to authors
  • shows that you’ve done your research  
  • means that others can find the resources you have used.
