Modern Foreign Language: French
“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.”
Learning a foreign language is a necessary part of being a member of a multi-cultural society and provides an opening to other cultures. It prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly carried out in languages other than English. Learning another language is about the broader curriculum – about understanding language and identity, about developing an international outlook, and about learning. At Weston Turville we aim to enable children to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. We also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching provides the foundation for learning further languages, equipping children to study and work in other countries.
