Modern Foreign Languages

Learning a foreign language is a liberation and provides an opening to other cultures. Learning languages fosters students’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. Students learn to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language learning provides the foundation for learning further languages, equipping students to study and work in other countries.
