Modern Foreign Languages
The ability to communicate with others in their own language has always been an invaluable skill. Now more than ever in ‘the global village’ getting on with others, understanding their culture and being able to articulate one’s own needs are crucial. In the Modern Foreign Languages department we aim to help our students become confident communicators who can hold their own whether in the workplace, travelling for pleasure or meeting people from other countries in a social setting.
We aim to make language learning an enjoyable and rewarding experience and offer a range of visits to France and Germany to enable our students to practise their knowledge in a living context. Pupils have regular access to native speakers in each language. We also subscribe to several MFL websites, which pupils are able to access from home.
