MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES
We believe that learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils' curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.
The teaching should enable 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 should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
