By the end of Year 9, most students have been studying French, Spanish and German (for some) for three or more years. All current Year 9 students will be required to take at least one Modern Foreign Language to IGCSE level from French, Spanish and German or a combination of the three. The more languages a student is able to speak, the more prepared s/he is for their future prosperity and global standing.
However, the choice must be based on existing performance and a realistic view of future potential, a decision best reached in close consultation with the French, Spanish and German teachers concerned. All students in Year 9 will be assessed in three skills. This should give students a strong indication regarding their ability and an opportunity to compare their language skills.
