Department Aims & Objectives

Our aims are to develop the confidence of our learners in the use of the language in all communication skills for inside and outside of  the classroom: we aim to encourage a good accent and spontaneity of speech, in responding to or asking questions.

As our young linguists gradually learn to work more independently, we develop their reading skills to enable them to explore a particular culture through reading material. We encourage pupils to listen to or watch live programmes in the target language, in order to help them to practise their listening skills.Through the study of practical topics, we develop pupils' writing skills in the target language.
