The Modern Language department has a team of six teachers and three foreign language assistants from France, Germany and Cuba. We aim to make foreign language learning an enjoyable, intellectually stimulating and successful experience, offering insights into the culture and civilisation of the foreign language countries and ultimately teaching the girls practical communication skills for further study, work and leisure abroad.
The Department provides an opportunity for pupils to experience the language, culture and sights of the foreign country by participating in trips abroad. Such visits are considered very important in providing an enjoyable and motivating experience for pupils. Recent visits include: Nice October 2017, Berlin June 2017, Valdepeñas February 2017 and Santander October 2016.
4 Form 3 pupils - Freya Beers, Rosie Elwood, Lauren Farmer and Anna Hughes competed in 'Francofest' at Whitla Hall, Queen's University on Monday 5th February. Event was organised at QUB to promote languages in business and marketing. Pupils had to create a stand for a simulated international trade fair environment and sell their products to prospective French companies using only French language. They created the resources, promo materials and products themselves and they practised role play dialogues and scenarios in French beforehand with Ms Vincent.
They won prize for Best French and featured during the holidays on Radio Ulster and the local news.
Well done girls and a big thank you to Ms Vincent
