Learning a language is an exciting experience where you take part in a wide variety of tasks, on a number of different topics and, when you try your hardest, you can very quickly see a big improvement in what you are able to do. This makes it an excellent subject to study to help you to improve a variety of academic skills.
What has been happening in the department recently?
The French department has been working hard to ensure that all students are provided with a well-rounded curriculum which prepares students for the demands of speaking a language.
We recently welcomed a group of Year 5 students from local primary schools into the department as part of the school’s 5 Star project. Over the course of three weeks, the group developed their reading and speaking and listening skills by completing a variety of tasks on some of the topics which are typically covered in Year 7.
