You will have to choose one of the following Modern Foreign Languages next year: (French, Portuguese, Mandarin). Remember the following:
As you progress through your education at school, a modern language will be of benefit to your personal and educational development in a variety of ways.
- It will allow you to establish contact with people of your own age who speak other languages and to access information from other cultures.
- It will help you to understand that experience of the world through another language can be just as 'real' and 'valid' as experience of the world through Spanish or English.
- It will offer you the positive experience of developing an entirely new mode of understanding and expression.
