Modern Foreign Languages

Share this article

The Modern Foreign Languages Faculty comprises four languages:

German (Years 1 – 6)
French (Years 1- 6)
Spanish (Years 2 – 6)
Russian (Years 3 – 6)

In Year 4 we enter students for the Common European Framework of Languages examinations (CEF), which give them a qualification that is recognised the world over. In the IB programme students usually continue with their current foreign language, but sometimes there is the chance to start a new one ab initio.

We use a range of teaching styles to excite and engage our students, not only in the language but its associated cultures. There are annual trips and exchanges that provide opportunities to experience immersion in the target language as well as to make new friends and share experiences; for many students this is one of the highlights of their time at ECP.
