Learning a language broadens horizons, instils confidence and deepens the understanding of the world in which we currently live. The benefits of being able to communicate in a second language are profound, opening minds to different cultures, developing speaking, listening, reading and writing skills as well as increasing employability.

The Modern Foreign Languages department at Easington Academy utilises these core beliefs to develop curious and confident language learners of the future who will have the skills and capacity to master whichever language they may choose.

During their first years of study, students will have the opportunity to visit France with the Academy. This highly popular cultural visit aims to ‘put into practice’ the skills learnt within the classroom and students are encouraged to speak in the target language throughout the visit. This is a real opportunity to bring the subject to life for our learners. For those unable to travel, we bring the world to our classroom by celebrating festivals, food tasting, exposure to the latest songs, cultural anthems, clips from French news and interviews and authentic texts from French literature, newspapers and magazines. All students have the opportunity to develop conversational language skills and the necessary key language to successfully complete daily tasks in France such as booking a table in a restaurant, hotel reservations, asking for directions etc. Comme c’est genial!

As well as studying a diverse range of topics, students also have the opportunity to take part in a range of exciting interhouse competitions and extra-curricular activities, such as French Book and Film club, at regular intervals throughout the school year.

Our Curriculum

In addition to our aim of creating independent, motivated language learners, MFL also contributes to the development of cultural capital in a variety of ways every lesson. Language and culture are explored every lesson, covering a variety of familiar and unfamiliar contexts.
