HELPING YOUR CHILD WITH MFL

HOW CAN YOU HELP YOUR CHILD WITH LANGUAGES?

We would recommend that students have a French/German/Spanish dictionary for use at home/in-school.

We strongly recommend that students purchase the workbook which accompanies our courses at Key Stage 3 and GCSE. This is an invaluable aid for revision and consolidation at home. Details will be provided at the start of each year.

The key to success in learning a language is regular learning outside lessons. Students will be expected to learn new vocabulary on a regular basis and parents can help students by showing anĀ interest in the topics of study and testing their son or daughter on the words/phrases. No language knowledge is necessary!

The department is committed to providing opportunities for students to experience the language abroad and practise their new language skills. A range of educational visits are offered and you will receive details of these at the start of the academic year.

We have developed a series of on-line revision resources available for home use to support students. These can be accessed at home via the internet or facilities are available in-school after hours.
