At Beths Grammar School, we teach students how to communicate with us and their peers in the target language. It is really important to us that students are able to express themselves, and students thrive on doing so. Communicating in the MFLs often leads to points in class competitions and the awarding of positive stamps in books as well as commendations.
Learning a language is about speaking, writing, reading and listening in it, however, it is also about studying and appreciating other cultures. For this reason, students indulge in cultural units, opening their eyes and minds to new ideas and concepts from around the world. We run and take part in variety of extra-curricular activities and events throughout the year ranging from Language and Cultural Week in September to International Bake Off, to various writing and speaking competitions.
