Supporting the Learning of Modern Foreign Languages at Home

Hola, Bonjour, Ni Hao! We are back into our routines in the Modern Foreign Language (MFL) department at BIS! It is always a pleasure to meet our new classes and remember so many of the students we taught last year. Welcome to all new students this year and get ready to learn French, Spanish and Chinese in a fun way!

  • MFL 8
  • MFL 7
  • MFL 6
  • MFL 5
  • MFL 4
  • MFL 3
  • MFL 1
  • MFL 2

There are a variety of websites we use in class, but we would also like children to use them at home to practise and review what has been learnt in lessons. Although there is no homework in Primary for MFL, we strongly encourage students, especially in Year 5 and Year 6 to spend at least 20 minutes a week on one of the following websites in order to consolidate their learning and progress more effectively.

Learning sets are created and shared by the teachers. Children have many ways to learn vocabulary, as well as the option to print vocab lists or create self-assessment tests. It is a free website and students can log in with their school Google account.

This free language website is full of exercises and covers a very wide range of topics and grammar for each language. Students use it in class so they are familiar with it. It does not require logging in.

One of the younger students’ favourites, Linguascope has many activities and games for each topic for all three languages.

This website is an excellent tool for practising listening skills through karaoke-style gap-filling exercises. Older students love it, however, it has to be used under the supervision of an adult who can check that the content of the music video is appropriate.

BIS HCMC students love learning languages, from F3 all the way to Year 6. Please ask your children what they have been learning in lessons.  Ask them to sing you the songs they have learnt, to teach you a little bit of what they know, treat them to a Chinese, French or Spanish restaurant and make them taste culinary specialities.

Xièxiè, Gracias, Merci!
