Spanish (MFL)

At Starbank we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for all pupils.  Pupils will develop communication and literacy skills that lay the foundation for their future language learning. Through planned topics pupils develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities between a foreign language and English.

Learning Spanish raises the awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world and introduces an international dimension to pupils’ learning, giving them an insight into their own culture and those of others. Our topics provide a medium for cross-curricular links and for the reinforcement of knowledge, skills and understanding developed in other subjects.
