Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

“Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things but learning another way to think about things.”  Flora Lewis.

The MFL Department at TWS aims to inspire pupils to embark on a life-long enjoyment of languages and develop an understanding, interest, respect and empathy for other nationalities and cultures.

Subject Leader:  Ms M Amboage (

Key Stage 3 MFL

French and Spanish is taught at KS3. Pupils will develop their proficiency in the four key skill areas - speaking, listening, reading and writing. This will be done through a variety of games and activities aimed at building pupil confidence so that they are able to communicate and express themselves confidently in either French or Spanish.

Key Stage 4 MFL

German and Spanish are currently taught at KS4. We follow the AQA GCSE specification. At KS4 pupils will consolidate the speaking, listening, reading and writing skills they developed at KS3 and expand their vocabulary. They will cover a wide range of topic and develop their use of their chosen MFL in real life situations. They will also be introduced to a number of new grammatical structures.
