The engagement and learning of a foreign language is an increasingly vital aspect of modern society, as our world continues to change with different cultures infusing and combining all around us. The acquisition of the skills needed to learn foreign languages is therefore hugely important. The study of foreign languages not only provides such skills, but also nurtures the understanding and compassion that students have for people of other cultures.
Here at Lime Tree, MFL is taught at Key Stage Two across all year groups. Pupils develop a taste for the French language with particular emphasis on speaking skills. We cover topics such as food, animals and travel.
In Year 3, students are introduced to conversational French greetings, which is then built upon throughout the rest of the key stage. French lessons are extremely hands on and focus on igniting a love and passion for the learning of modern foreign languages.
