Modern Foreign Languages
In this day and age it is more important than ever that students learn to speak a foreign language. Languages are a practical discipline where students should be allowed to develop the ability to use languages effectively for the purposes of communication. We also encourage positive attitudes towards the learning of foreign languages and to the speakers of that language and a sympathetic approach to other cultures and civilisations. Throughout our teaching we encourage students to work independently and as part of teams in varied activities. Modern Languages contributes to the basic core skills of ICT, reading, writing and speaking. We aim to employ teaching methods and resources that allow all students, irrespective of their gender, ethnic origin or academic ability to have equal access to the subject.
The Modern Foreign Languages Department at the Kingswood School consists of four teachers, most of whom can offer both French and German.
