MFL - Modern Foreign Languages

Intent - We aim to…

The purpose of education is to impart knowledge and inspire a love of learning in young people. Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) is an essential part of this. Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. MFL aims to foster pupil’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers; both in speech and in writing. It also provides opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and provide the foundation for learning further languages; equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
