Learning to speak a new language
At Trellech, we recognise the importance of learning languages and provide opportunities through fun and stimulating MFL lessons.
We know that talk is the underlying key factor in the development of MFL. In learning a new language, pupils reproduce sounds, create phrases and sentences, and engage in simple conversations. Learning a new language helps pupils with numerous skills:
- Makes pupils aware that different languages have different sounds
- Makes pupils learn about the importance of pronunciation and intonation and formal and informal use of language
- Develops pupils’ awareness of the need for clear and specific pronunciation to achieve successful communication
