Numeracy & Literacy in Modern Foreign Languages

Literacy comes at the forefront of teaching within MFL.  Students learn to write, speak and read in the foreign language(s) that they study.  As well as learning the fundamental grammatical structures and vocabulary that underpin each language, students are encouraged to develop their work so that they can understand longer passages of text, express opinions both orally and in writing and to be able to talk about a range of topics in both written and oral form.  Students are regularly tested on spelling and grammar which, in turn, helps them to use the language independently and more confidently.

Numeracy in MFL is taught across a range of topics including numbers, dates (birthdays), shopping (clothes, and food), weights, measures and telling the time.
