The North Walsham High School MFL department is committed to broadening pupils’ cultural capital, understanding and appreciation of the world and developing strong, long-life linguistic skills and knowledge. Along with learning new topics, reinforcing knowledge in every lesson is the key to successfully learning an additional language: we give pupils plenty of opportunity to practice and therefore remember key vocabulary and grammar structures. This is the first step towards our ultimate aim - becoming independent as a language learner and creative and confident with the target language.
