Modern Foreign Languages
“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.”
At Longfield we pride ourselves on our enthusiasm in teaching modern foreign languages (MFL). We aspire to open the minds of our pupils to the world outside of Longfield Academy, aiding them in not only the speaking, listening, writing and reading of a foreign language, but also to expose our students to cultures outside of the one they are used to.
Increasingly, people find themselves working in a multilingual or multicultural environment local. We live in a global community; the world has never been smaller, so how do we communicate with those around us?
Not only does knowing a foreign language increase your interpersonal skills but also opens the door to a variety of careers, increases your employability appeal and more opportunities to advance your career.
Above all, learning a language is enjoyable and on top of the vocational advantage it offers, it clears the path for travel, studying abroad and the ability to communicate confidently with people from all over.
