Here at the Carey Federation Madame Clarke, our French specialist, plans for and teaches our children using an array of experiences that fosters an enjoyment for learning a foreign language. She plans high-quality language lessons that aim to nurture our pupils’ curiosity ; we fully understand that learning a foreign language is a liberation that provides an opening to other cultures and we seize upon the experiences this subject offers. The children love learning French in the context of practical purposes: for example, learning about resources in the classroom or at home or maybe making Christmas and Easter cards (all written in French of course). It's a delight to hear the children's responses, both written and verbal, their confidence is apparent and knowledge quite clear. We feel certain that the enthusiasm and enjoyment of Language teaching will provide the foundation for learning further languages - who knows it may even foster in children an enthusiasm and interest to take the leap to study and work in other countries.
