Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages Intent



At Colgate we want our pupils to develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and exciting and show a desire to continue their language learning past key stage 2.  Children will feel confident engaging in spoken French, develop skills in reading, listening and writing, and know how important languages will be in their future.



Although our current MFL taught is French, we strive to provide children with opportunities to experience a range of other languages and celebrate the growing diversity of our pupils and the languages they speak.



We want our pupils to develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them with a better awareness of self, others and cultural differences.
