Saint John Houghton Catholic Voluntary Academy

Learning without limits

Modern Foreign Languages

All students at Saint John Houghton CVA will have the opportunity to study a Modern Foreign Language in Year 7 to 9.  Studying a Modern Foreign Language gives pupils a greater understanding of other cultures and deepens their appreciation of the multicultural world that we live in.  The ability to communicate in another language is a lifelong skill that gives pupils a wider range of possibilities for their future employment, leisure and education.   

 

Students will spend Years 7 to 9 developing their linguistic competence and knowledge of vocabulary and grammatical structures in French or Spanish.  Through learning French or Spanish, students will have the opportunity to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and to express themselves with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity.  Learning a Modern Foreign Language further supports students with the development of their literacy skills in English.   

 

French - At GCSE we follow the AQA French Specification. This allows those students who continue to study a language, the opportunity to develop their core knowledge of vocabulary and grammatical structures and acquire a greater depth of language skills and cultural awareness.

 

 

Spanish - At GCSE we follow the AQA Spanish Specification. This allows those students who continue to study a language, the opportunity to develop their core knowledge of vocabulary and grammatical structures and acquire a greater depth of language skills and cultural awareness.
