At Wollaston the MFL curriculum provides students with the opportunity to study a wide range of themes, increasing their knowledge of vocabulary while building their understanding of structures, sound patterns and how language works. Students are able to express their opinions on a variety of topic areas relevant to their everyday lives. Students are also encouraged to see themselves as global citizens. They recognise that language learning is a lifelong skill, developing listening, concentration and social skills through partnership and group work, and thus enhancing their self-esteem. Students learn to appreciate the importance of communication skills in the modern world of work. They develop their self-confidence and resilience through challenging work, enabling all learners to make the most progress they can. We have a modern and interactive curriculum which does not use textbooks.
The faculty is based in five main teaching rooms, including a Languages Lab, and interactive websites and games are frequently used in lessons. There is a dedicated speaking room where students have the opportunity to practise their spoken French or German with Sixth Form mentors.
