MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES OVERVIEW
Modern Languages at Queen Anne’s aims to build upon the great breadth of language learning experiences which girls bring with them, as well as to support all the girls in the exploration of new language opportunities. We want to stretch and challenge girls in the modern languages department through the learning of French, German, Mandarin and Spanish, which form the core of the languages on offer.
At GCSE, most girls are expected to take a modern language and we encourage them to take two languages where possible. Successful study of a modern language demonstrates a skill and knowledge base recognised as invaluable in the modern workplace. Combinations of French, German and Spanish can be studied but pupils are always welcome to discuss other possible language options.
EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Enrichment activities in modern languages include an exchange programme to Toulouse for girls in the 4s and U4 and to enhance the teaching of Spanish and German, the girls may take part in trips to Madrid, Toledo and Segovia. A trip to Berlin takes place during the GCSE years. Cultural enrichment for the girls sees them taking part in Chinese cookery to celebrate Chinese New Year and learning Chinese Dance.
