MFL – Essential for being a good citizen!


‘In the knowledge society of the 21st century, language competence and intercultural understanding are not optional extras, they are an essential part of being a citizen.’
Languages for All: Languages for Life – A Strategy for England 2002

Modern Foreign Languages and the new Primary Curriculum 2011.

The new curriculum will be statutory from September 2011 for all age groups with exception of the new languages element, the right for all primary children aged 7 upwards to learn a foreign language, which will be phased in over four years starting in Year 3.

I want to know if your school already covers MFL and to what level? If your school has not yet introduced MFL, how does it hope to go about it? Using NQT’s or training current staff? Please comment below.
