At Tottington Primary School we firmly believe that children develop an interest in learning a Modern Foreign Language (MFL) in an enjoyable and stimulating way that supports an understanding of living in a multi- cultural society, provides an opening to other cultures, fosters children’s curiosity and provides a deeper understanding about the wider world we live in. It can provide a valuable insight to the cultures and societies where Spanish is a predominant language. The skills, knowledge and understanding gained through learning a foreign language make a major contribution to children’s understanding of their own cultures and those of others. Language learning also lies at the heart of ideas about individual identity and community. For this reason, language learning can give children a new perspective on their own language and cultural identity and enable them to be more open and adaptable to new experiences.
