French

Welcome to MFL at St Matthew’s

 Here at St Matthew’s we understand how important it is to learn language skills. We believe they contribute towards our understanding of the society and world that we live and work in. 

The language we learn at our school is French.

French is one of the very few languages spoken all over the world. There are currently over 275 million people around the world that speak French in 29 countries.

Learning French helps our children to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people. In addition it helps to develop the skill to understand and communicate in another language, which the children can use all over the world to make new friends and aid communication for their future. It is important to learn these skills from a young age for our children to respect others. 

We believe our children will learn best through interactive, fun lessons which give the children plenty of opportunities to use their language skills with each other. Our language teacher at St Matthew's is called Corinne.
