Passion and Point. Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. In MFL at Baysgarth, we have embraced technology not only to support students in developing knowledge of a foreign language but also to build their employability skills, by moving to a paperless environment.
Being able to understand different cultures and express their ideas and thoughts in another language will support our students to prepare for their future in the world of work. Our students learn to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.
We provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes and learn new ways of thinking and problem solving. The language learning at Baysgarth provides the foundation for learning further languages, equipping students to study and work in other countries.
Students at both KS3 and 4:
understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions. They continually improve the accuracy of their work.
can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt. They discover and develop grammatical knowledge over time.
are inspired through extra curricular activities and trips, which open their eyes to new cultures, opportunities and reasons to study a foreign language.
