Welcome to Spanish
"No hay ninguna cosa seria que no pueda decirse con una sonrisa."
The Modern Foreign Language team aim to:
- Broaden students' horizons to accept that our society/culture is not the only one and to consider the importance and relevance of other societies. We aim to develop a positive attitude to diversity within the British Isles, the European Community and the wider world.
- Develop students' communicative skills and give them an awareness of the nature of language and to boost their literacy skills.
- Give students a feeling of success with small, structured activities and thus to develop self-confidence.
- Help students to achieve skills and qualifications that will be of benefit when looking for employment, or that will enable them to study further.
- Have a positive learning environment in classrooms, recognising different learning styles so that all students can achieve to the best of their ability.
- Enable students to develop personalised learning and thinking skills such as memorising, analysis, communication and research.
