Modern Foreign Languages promote an interest and curiosity about the wider world and a sense of European/international identity. Languages raise children's awareness of being a global citizen. The aims of MFL teaching at Hatherleigh Primary School are to enable all children to:
- develop an enthusiasm for learning languages and to become aware of the benefits of understanding and speaking different languages;
- communicate in other languages through speaking, listening, reading and writing;
- respect and understand other cultures, heritage and multilingualism;
- become interested in the international dimensions of the school through the development of links with other countries.
