Modern Languages

Learning other languages enables children and young people to make connections with different people and their cultures and to play a fuller part as global citizens.

It is important for the nation’s prosperity that young people are attracted to learning a modern language and that they become confident users of a modern language, well equipped with the skills needed in the new Europe and in the global marketplace.

One of the key aims of modern languages teaching is to develop young people’s communicate competence so that they are able to use and enjoy the language effectively in real situations and for a range of relevant purposes in work and leisure throughout their life.
