Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

Learning a foreign language is a liberation... provides an opening to other cultures.

National Curriculum, Languages

At Wherwell we teach Spanish as a Modern Language.

Why do we learn Spanish? 

  • To understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
  • To speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
  • To write at varying lengths, for different purposes and audiences, using a variety of grammatical structures.
  • To discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
