Years 7 – 9 Modern Language

Our students are encouraged to be independent learners and to develop an appreciation of the culture of the language being studied.

In Years 7 to 9 students are encouraged to be communicators of the modern languages and are developing the ability to communicate in the target languages through both the spoken and written word. The programme focuses on the language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.

The programme is topic based and themes are relevant to the age of students. An understanding of target language grammar is set in context and given a practical application. Students are also encouraged to be independent learners and to develop an appreciation of the culture of the language being studied.

Languages offered:

In Year 8, and particularly in Year 9, incoming students should have some prior knowledge of the language chosen.

Our language classes are both dynamic and stimulating, aiming to foster positive attitudes towards foreign language learning, which will continue into further study at IGCSE/GCSE and IB. Using a variety of media we aim to encourage students to communicate effectively in the target language.

Language classes will involve many teaching strategies such as role-play, pair work, group work, individual assignments, oral presentations, drama presentations and a host of games and activities to motivate and challenge learners of the modern language.
