The MFL (Modern Foreign Languages) Department consists of three teachers, who all speak several different languages. One of the faculty’s main strengths is the passion for language learning that the staff demonstrate to pupils. We dedicate ourselves to showing pupils that MFL can provide excellent career and travel opportunities, whilst at the same time being fun to learn.
At Moreton, we teach French and Spanish at Key Stage 3. Pupils study one language and follow this throughout their time at school, from Year 7 to GCSE.
We understand that learning a language can be difficult, so we aim to make lessons as interactive as possible and focus on key topics that are relevant to young people. These include family life and friends, hobbies and interests, food and drink, holidays, the world around us and lots more. Pupils also get the chance to watch foreign films and television clips in lessons, as well as having access to laptops for gaining insight into cultural aspects of the language and country.
The faculty also works hard to promote the importance of languages across the school. For example, pupils take part in activities and competitions for European Day of Languages and cross-curricular events.
There is an annual trip to Paris where students have first-hand experience of seeing the language in everyday use. Pupils will spend three days away exploring what the city has to offer, including a day at Disneyland Paris!
To summarise, the MFL faculty is an outgoing team of linguists who are committed to providing pupils with new and exciting opportunities for language learning.
