Modern Foreign Languages
At Quinton Church Primary School, we believe learning a modern foreign language is a vital part to ensuring that pupils are prepared for the world around them. We provide our children with an international dimension to their learning which enables them to learn about different countries and cultures and empowers them to see the world as responsible global citizens. We have chosen to teach French as our Modern Foreign Language (MFL) across Quinton as this ensures pupils have a good foundation in the subject before moving into the next phase and journey in their education. As some children in our school have not had the chance to travel abroad or meet people from a variety of cultures, through studying French, they will develop an understanding of different cultures around the world as well as respect and acceptance of these cultures. It also allows pupils to develop their written, auditory and verbal skills.
French is the 2nd most widely spoken language in the world after English. French is the official language or one of the official languages in 29 countries. English, for comparison’s sake, is the official language or one of the official languages in 45 countries.
