In year 7, pupils begin learning French, with three hours a fortnight. In year 8, the majority of students will begin their Spanish studies and will spend three hours on Spanish and two on French. In year 9, the dual linguists will continue their studies and the French only students will have the chance to learn Spanish.
During years 7, 8 and 9, pupils cover a variety of different topic areas and acquire a range of transferable skills and strategies for language learning. Activities are focused around building up pupils’ confidence in speaking, listening, reading and writing.
