Cultural Knowledge & Creativity in MFL!

Published 5 June 2024

In Years 7, 8 and 9, Language students were given the challenge of finding out about some cultural elements of their respective languages and where they are spoken. We feel it is so important that the students are aware that our main Modern Foreign Languages are not just spoken in France, Germany and Spain and that we help students develop an understanding and empathy for the wide variety of cultures represented in each of the countries chosen. After completing their research, students created a poster, without the use of IT. The results proved to be some beautiful presentations of a variety of towns and countries where the languages are spoken.

Our wonderful Foreign Language Assistants – Roberto, Hannah and Alexandre, chose their favourites and decided on overall winners. We are delighted to acknowledge the work of the overall winners and want to say a big thank you to all students who took part. Here are a couple of photos of some of the winners and posters.  Well done all!
