Modern Foreign Languages


 “To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world”

Chinese Proverb 

As Linguists…
Pupils will develop the skills to:
  • Read easily, fluently and with good understanding and develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information.           
  • Broaden their vocabulary and develop the ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary
  • Write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences  
  • Use discussion in order to learn; and  elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas both formally and informally   
Aspirations for the Future
Pupils develop an understanding of how subjects and specific skills are linked to future jobs.
Here are some of the jobs you could aspire to do in the future as a Linguist:
Journalist/foreign correspondent
Positions in International Non-profit Organizations
Game/Web translator

Flight attendant

Help at home

In order to support and extend your child’s language learning, it would be of huge benefit if you could discuss their learning and the topics covered and encourage them to show-off their new language skills. There are many fantastic, interactive websites that have been designed especially for children, which not only meet the curriculum expectations, but are also really great fun! Please encourage your child to practise skills learnt and to extend themselves.
