Modern Foreign Languages
Global communication has never been more important. Studying Languages at school develops communication skills, broadens horizons and enhances future career opportunities.
Modern Foreign Languages play a vital part in the school curriculum because they encourage students to look outwards and appreciate other cultures. As a result, students learn to respect, value and understand others.
Students confidently improve their speaking skills through the use of the target language for real purposes. They also develop their listening and reading skills to enhance comprehension of the language. Through writing and translation, students are able to apply the rules of grammar which, in addition, allows them to enrich their linguistic knowledge of English.
Learning a language equips students with transferable skills, such as problem solving, the ability to infer and deduce meaning, memorisation and promote independent learning.
Employers consistently rank skills in Modern Foreign Languages as among the most desirable in an ever-competitive global jobs’ market.
