Modern Foreign Languages

Curriculum summary – MFL

‘If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.’ – Nelson Mandela

At Harris Invictus Academy Croydon, we believe that learning additional languages provides students with a valuable educational, social and cultural experience. Students are given the opportunity to study French and Spanish from Year 7, with equal emphasis on the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition, all language lessons promote literacy and provide students with opportunities to develop their skills in communication, thinking, creativity and enterprise.

All students study French and Spanish through a range of topics areas which are relevant to their lives and the world around them. We aim to provide students with ‘real’ language by using a variety of authentic texts and stimuli, including news articles, literature, music and film. In addition to language learning, students are provided with opportunities to learn about the culture, customs and traditions of countries where French and Spanish are spoken, enriching their intercultural awareness and understanding. The topic areas studied at Key Stage 3 also provide a solid foundation for further study at GCSE and help to equip students for the demands of the GCSE examinations.   

Students receive two lessons of French and one lesson of Spanish each week in Year 7, and two lessons of Spanish and one lesson of French each week in Year 8. At the end of Year 8, students will chose to continue with either French or Spanish in Year 9. There is an option for talented linguists to continue with both languages.

In addition to French and Spanish lessons, the MFL department offers a number of exciting enrichment activities, including a weekly languages club (Portuguese, Italian and Mandarin), a world film club and a variety of cultural trips. In addition, we mark the European Day of Languages in September each year, during which we celebrate the diversity of languages represented within our school community.
