Being a Linguist: French

At Longford CofE Primary School, the language we teach is French. Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. Through our French lessons, we encourage children to be linguists, enabling them to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. We provide opportunities for children to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read literature in the original language.
