In Blessed John Duckett, we believe that learning a modern foreign language for all children is beneficial for many reasons:

  • Children really enjoy learning to speak another language, they become aware of other cultures in the world
  • We also believe that the earlier children start to learn another language, the faster the additional language is acquired
  • Children are taught French from Year 3 to Year 6 by their class teacher, however children in EYFS and KS1 will hear words from other languages too.

They will learn how to:

  • Ask and answer questions
  • Communicate in the other language
  • Use correct pronunciation and intonation.
  • Understand meaning of words
  • Understand basic grammar
  • Communicate in the other language
