Modern Foreign Languages
The Modern Foreign Languages Course in Key Stage 3 at Brook Green Centre for Learning follows the National Curriculum.
Key Stage 3 students study French on a weekly basis learning about French culture and language. Throughout the year, they learn a repertoire of words and sentences in order to read, write, respond and converse in the target language, for example presenting themselves, greeting, preferences, hobbies, classroom objects and instructions... Lessons are taught mainly in the target language to familiarise themselves with the pronunciation. All lessons are differentiated to their needs and relate to their interests. Role play, games and ICT are used to enthuse the students in learning the language which they greatly enjoy. Most students are very curious about the culture and traditions and have an enquiring mind which drives them to ask for more facts and vocabulary.
At Key Stage 4, students have the possibility to carry on with MFL study as an option in the view to acquire some qualifications.
