Purpose of Study

We intend to provide a high-quality MFL education which fosters pupil curiosity, deepens the understanding of world cultures and provides an opening for worldwide career prospects and experiences. MFL changes our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, for it is the most important step in communicating with other nations. All pupils are taught essential aspects of vocabulary, spoken and written language, grammar and an appreciation of language differences. MFL should enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in both speech and writing, using a knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary. It is focused on familiar and routine contexts to enable children to apply knowledge of the new language to their own experiences. Pupils will begin to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation. They should be encouraged to write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using a variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.
