Languages

The Languages department at Wallingford School aims to provide all students with the knowledge and skills they need to become able linguists and lifelong language learners. During MFL lessons we teach students to develop the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as a sound knowledge of vocabulary and grammar rules which ensures they make strong progress and become increasingly more confident about using the language in both spoken and written forms. All students have the chance to study both one Romance language (French) and one Germanic language (German) thereby gaining experience of 2 major European language families. We believe that using the target language in real-life scenarios is essential and to this end we offer all students various opportunities to travel to France and Germany on day trips, residentials and Exchanges with our partner schools in Grenoble and Bad Wurzach. These visits also broaden our students’ cultural awareness and help them to develop tolerance, resilience and independence.
