MFL resources are an especially important way to help children learn how to listen.
When starting out it is extremely interesting for a child to hear the differences and similarities between their mother tongue and a new language. When learning a foreign language it also reinforces basic grammar as children learn how to build sentences. They will be able to identify nouns and verbs and start to understand the basics of tenses.
Extremely young children will begin their learning journey with the spoken language. It is extremely fun for children to learn how to identify basic feelings, nouns and verbs in an alternate language. As they begin to unlock the secrets of a new language they will have an increased sense of achievement.
Children will love the challenge of telling the days of the week in another tongue. It is fun for them to be able to identify whether they are in “la salle de classe” or “la salle a manger”. They can tell you if they feel “glücklich” or not.
When learning about a foreign language there are many things going on. Children are able to broaden their vocabulary. They are appreciating the differences between cultures and countries.
Our resources provide a lovely introduction to Modern Foreign Languages which will support your children’s learning.
