Modern Foreign Languages

Learning a language broadens student’s understanding of the world and the importance of human connection. It supports the development of the brain in ways that can help students to better understand their own language and to explore the origins of words, linking closely to human history.

Language students learn the skills to embrace other cultures and to look beyond their immediate environment to develop a view of other ways of life; understanding how language underpins human relationships.

Our language students use their studies to further develop their understanding of their own metacognition. They develop their vocabulary and grammatical skills to build functional language ability. We hope that they take their language skills forward to relate in a more open minded way to people from all cultures.
