Year 8 MFL Options for Year 9
In response to national changes and developments in the GCSEs which has led to an increase in course content, Year 8 students will be opting for either French or Spanish in Year 9 and will be timetabled for lessons in their chosen language. If a students has been studying only French in Year 8 they can only continue with French in Year 9 and at GCSE.
The focus on one language will be beneficial as it allows students to further develop the skills and knowledge required to be successful in French or Spanish, which we hope they will choose to study as a GCSE. For able linguists who would like to the opportunity to undertake both French and Spanish as a GCSE, we will schedule additional classes which will be timetabled after school.
We have provided a PowerPoint presentation to help you review the language choice and we would encourage you to discuss the best option with your son/daughter before completing this online form:
