MFL (French)


When teaching French, learning is practical and fun.

Children learn new vocabulary through games and quizzes. They are then encouraged to put this vocabulary into practice. For example, children will learn how to hold a conversation. Children also find out about the French culture and how French speaking countries are different. As well as French, other modern foreign language clubs are offered during school times at various times throughout the year.
