The Modern Foreign Languages department at The Academy at Shotton Hall utilises these core beliefs to develop curious and confident language learners of the future who will have the skills and capacity to master whichever language they may choose. We currently teach French to all year groups.
We bring the world to our classroom by celebrating festivals, food tasting, exposure to the latest songs, cultural anthems, clips from French news and interviews and authentic texts from French literature, newspapers and magazines. All students have the opportunity to develop conversational language skills and the necessary key language to successfully complete daily tasks in France such as booking a table in a restaurant, hotel reservations, asking for directions. Comme c’est génial!
