Modern Foreign Languages
At De Havilland Primary School, we recognise the importance of learning a foreign language; we know that many of our children can already speak two languages and how this offers unique experiences for them. Children, who want to explore different parts of the world now and in the future, can learn about diverse cultures, places, and lifestyle. By knowing how to acquire the skills of learning a new language this can offer life changing experiences. Learning a foreign language can also open many career paths to, for example in leisure and tourism, transportation, worldwide trade, education and linguistics. French is our chosen language because 29 countries have French as their national language and 220 million people speak French around the world.
