Modern Foreign Languages

Through our teaching we endeavour to match the aims of the school with the aims of our department, encouraging every child to fulfil their potential in languages.

The aims of the Modern Languages Department are:

  • To promote student enjoyment in learning a modern foreign language
  • To encourage students to experience success
  • To give students encouragement and help them develop confidence in their abilities
  • To set students realistic targets so that, as they achieve and in many cases surpass them, we can maintain motivation and interest
  • To continue an ever-developing approach to language awareness and language skills
  • To relate modern foreign language topics to the whole school experience of school life e.g. the work in the classroom or the sharing of the group in a foreign visit

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart. - Nelson Mandela
