Modern Foreign Languages
Key Stage 3
A GCSE ready MFL student will be independent, curious and able to manage their own time effectively, going beyond the classroom in their desire to develop their knowledge of the subject by watching movies, listening to foreign radio, reading in the target language or researching grammar. They will match the passion of their teachers for the subject and understand that MFL is not just a classroom subject but also a skill that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. As such, a GCSE ready student will be aware of the outside world and the possibilities that exist through studying a language, whether that is in the world of work or in the world of travel. A good linguist will realise that we must break down barriers through communication in the world rather than build them. They will be perseverant, resilient, reflective and metacognitive in their learning, developing skills that allow them to be successful both inside and outside of school, now and in the future.
The study of modern languages helps students to develop a unique understanding of how language works.
