MFL ~ Modern Foreign Languages
TO LEARN A LANGUAGE IS TO HAVE ONE MORE WINDOW FROM WHICH TO LOOK AT THE WORLD
~ Chinese Proverb
Learning a modern foreign language helps all students develop their interest and curiosity in the similarities and differences between themselves and others. This includes learning about countries, cultures, people and communities. Meeting people from other countries and cultures helps to broaden students’ horizons by experiencing new and different languages and cultures. Learning the basics of a foreign language helps students to extend and develop their language and communication skills and can enhance self-esteem.
At Meadowside, the Modern Foreign Language taught is French with the opportunity to join a Spanish lunchtime club once a week. Spanish is offered as an option for our 14-19 learners.
