MFL – Modern Foreign Language
In Modern Foreign Languages at Alderwood School all pupils learn either French or German at Key Stage 3 and are encouraged to opt for a language at GCSE. Pupils cover a range of topics that enable them to convey information, express their ideas and explain their points of view.
Learning a foreign language not only enables pupils to gain some experience of a different country and its culture through language, but also develops a greater understanding of their own language and its structure. Our aim is to promote a love of language learning that continues throughout life beyond the classroom.
