Within Modern Foreign Languages students articulate their thoughts and respect other cultures, and are able to do so through teaching methods supported by a plethora of research.
By teaching vocabulary explicitly and through themes and having a constant focus on knowledge retrieval of this vocabulary, students are equipped to communicate in each of the required disciplines (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing). A consistent basis of Spanish/French grammar underpins all that is taught, thus improving students’ literacy in English. Students are educated to be reflective learners, through teaching them rigour and resilience in the form of regular feedback, both verbal and written.
We want our students to leave school with a broad understanding of the world, which they will gain through studying themes in Hispanic/Francophone contexts; and a set of strong life-long linguistic skills that are reinforced through grammatical knowledge.
