From the Chalk Face!
Here we give a voice to schools. There is great variety in primary MFL teaching: the languages taught, the way they are taught, the resources used, and - not least - the amount of time given over to MFL teaching in an already busy curriculum. How does your school solve such a diversity of conditions - how do you teach MFL?
If you send us a few paragraphs with some pictures of children's work, materials you use, classroom displays etc., we will set aside a page for you, and you can send us updates whenever you like.
Schools profiled here are listed alphabetically, below. Click though to read more about each, glean ideas, share practice.
