At Pleasant Street Primary School we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop their ability to communicate, including key skills of speaking and listening. It provides excitement, enjoyment and helps children to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life.
Learning another language gives children a new perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others. The natural links between languages and other areas of the curriculum can enrich the overall teaching and learning experience. We want our children to have a limitless outlook on what can be achieved when they learn a language and what new doors can open to them on a global scale in the future.
