MFL Curriculum

KEY STAGE 3

Learning a language is a skill for life.  At Abbey College all students study Spanish in KS3.  The Key Stage 3 curriculum covers the key skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and is based on the topics in the Viva text book.  New language is acquired through the use of phonics, grammar progression, key topics and sentence builders which greatly help students become independent learners & more confident speakers.  We also want students to enjoy their lessons, be successful language learners and find the subject rewarding as Spanish is a core subject in KS4.

KEY STAGE 4

Currently at Key Stage 4, Spanish and French are both examined and assessed by AQA.  Across the Key Stage, key language is delivered through three themes devised by the examination board:

Theme 1 - Identity & culture

Theme 2 – Local, national, international & global areas of interest

Theme 3 – Current & future study and employment

While the course is of a practical and useful nature, GCSE students will also acquire a sound knowledge and understanding of grammar.   Whatever plans you may have for the future, knowledge of a language will increase your options.  The transferable skills gained on the course will be ideal for learning future languages and for studying in the 6th Form.

KEY STAGE 5

The Spanish and French A’ Level courses help students develop confident, effective communication skills in the language and a thorough understanding of the culture of countries and communities where the language is spoken.  It also covers the study of set texts and films which broadens students’ horizons and cultural knowledge.  An A’ Level in a language will also aid students preparing for future studies.
