Modern Foreign Languages
At Immanuel College, our Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) curriculum is designed with the intent of providing our students with a rich and immersive language learning experience to thrive in an interconnected and multilingual world.
Our aim is to develop their linguistic proficiency, cultural awareness, and a lifelong love for languages7. By engaging in our MFL curriculum, students will develop their character by acquiring the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to become confident and effective global citizens. We strive to create lifelong learners.
Students show perseverance in language acquisition and proficiency. We offer a comprehensive curriculum that focuses on the four key language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Through exposure to authentic materials, interactive activities, and regular practice, students will progressively build their vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and fluency in the target language.
Our MFL curriculum also encourages students to think critically and solve problems in the context of language learning. By engaging in authentic tasks, enabling them to navigate real-life situations in the target language.
In our curriculum we recognise the importance of cultural understanding in language learning, which in turn develops a students’ character. Our curriculum aims to foster students' appreciation and respect for different cultures, traditions, and perspectives6. Through exploring authentic resources, literature, and cultural events, students will gain insight into the customs, history, and societal norms of the countries where the target language is spoken.
Our curriculum places a strong emphasis on developing students' communicative competence. Students will engage in meaningful and purposeful interactions, both in and outside the classroom, to enhance their ability to express themselves through hope, understand others, and negotiate meaning in the target language8.
