Modern Foreign Languages

At Swindon Academy, we teach MFL through three dedicated immersion days, exposing our pupils to both the language and the culture of Spain and other Spanish-speaking nations.

We teach new vocabulary in small steps and at each step provide ample opportunity for pupils to practice it, both orally and in writing. We encourage pupils to ask and answer questions in Spanish, to add to the full immersive experience. Throughout the day there is opportunity to discuss culture, highlighting similarities and differences between Spain and Britain, adding to pupils’ understanding of the wider world.
