Ni Hao, Hola, Bonjour - A New Year of MFL at APP

14 September 2017

We are excited to start a new year of MFL, especially as the children choose their language early, we are looking forward to seeing them progress faster and helping them to become the global citizens of this world.

  • APP MFL (1)
  • APP MFL (2)

In Year 3 and Year 4, we will be focusing mostly on communication (speaking and listening), and we will be injecting more and more grammar in our lessons from Year 5 onwards. The aim is for students to have strong basic knowledge and skills when they arrive in Year 7 so they can tackle new challenges with confidence.

As language learners, we see the multitude of benefits that it brings to individuals, whether on a personal or professional level. I am convinced you as parents, see it too as most of you are already bilingual or trilingual. Here are a few things we would like you to encourage your children to do at home so they can progress in MFL :

  1. Practise vocabulary learnt in class using MFL websites (linguascope, quizlet)
  2. Listen to the radio in the chosen foreign language
  3. Watch movies in the foreign language with English subtitles (or not if you are looking for more of a challenge!)
  4. Find native speakers to practise the language with.

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” - Nelson Mandela, Former President Of South Africa
