Modern Foreign Languages (French & Spanish) A Level at Wye School
Globalisation makes communication across national and cultural borders more important than ever. While many foreigners speak English, it is also true that in the UK, business can be lost due to a lack of language skills and cultural understanding. It ha s been suggested that our European counterparts are happy to sell in our language, but they are more likely to buy in their own. Just think: how exciting would it be to speak a language without having to think about every single word? This is our goal! If you are prepared to work steadily throughout the course you will be surprised and delighted by what you can achieve: a practical and life - long skill.
The Modern Languages Department is lively and exciting, running A level courses in French and Spanish and the MFL teachers are passionate about their subject and committed to transferring this enthusiasm to their pupils.
