“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

MFL Curriculum Introduction

The modern foreign languages (MFL) curriculum aims to inspire students to become linguists who can express their ideas and thoughts in another language, understand and respond to its speakers. Through a knowledge rich curriculum, pupils acquire a cultural awareness and an understanding of the core vocabulary and grammar needed to develop the four main skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in the target language. MFL teaching will provide students with the foundation for learning further languages, giving them the skills to succeed in the workplace and become more rounded global citizens. The invaluable communication and problem-solving skills developed through learning a foreign language will foster students’ curiosity, and deepen their understanding and appreciation of other cultures both in their own country, and when they travel to other countries around the world.
