The Aims of Modern Foreign Language (MFL) are:

At Arco Academy our intent is to foster an interest in other languages which will help students develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries. This in turn will enhance students’ speaking and listening skills.
We currently use an external company to deliver the programme to our Pathway 1 students.
Students have the opportunity to learn 3 languages over the academic year. Lessons take place online weekly with a specialist teacher. The first part of the lesson is chalk-and-talk style teaching and the remaining teaching will be asynchronous learning.


Autumn Term – Mandarin (Level 1 assessment)
Spring Term – Spanish (Level 1 assessment)
Summer Term – French

Students have the option to sit a Modern Foreign Language if it has been chosen through their parent school during the referral process.
