Modern Foreign Languages

Competency in a foreign language is an important skill for the 21st Century.
Students develop communication skills on an inter-personal level for an increasingly global, high-tech economy.

From conversation to e-mail to video-conferencing our students prepare to become citizens of a multinational society.

Developing an understanding of another culture is a key aspect of learning a language.
Denbigh teaches French, German and Spanish at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 with Italian, Turkish and Russian taught as part of the 6th Form enrichment curriculum.
All students learn one language and some students learn two languages. Progression at Years 7-9 builds on the Key Stage 2 Primary Languages Strategy and students study the grammatical structures of the language.

At Years 10-11, students will study one or two languages to GCSE or follow an accredited business or vocational language course.

There are opportunities to visit France, Spain & Germany on exchanges with partner schools or residential trips at Years 7-9 or Years 10-11 and work placement visits to France and Germany in the Sixth Form.

Students are supported by thr ee foreign language assistants and a range of multi-media programmes including access to language learning websites and satellite television.
