Department Leader: Karim ElKanouni
Welcome to MFL at KBA!
Our department consists of 7 language specialists and we offer three languages; Spanish, French and German.
Our aims as a department are to develop pupils’ confidence and ability to communicate in a foreign language. We also strive to stretch and challenge learning by using as much of the target language in lessons as possible and also through encouraging pupils to do the same. We believe that learning languages fosters life-long learning skills that prepare pupils not only for further study, but also for employment.
As a department we love to share our passion for languages and we offer a range of extra-curricular clubs and trips. We currently run Spanish, French and German clubs in which pupils are able to practise their conversation skills through games. We also run an German exchange trip and language workshops which allow pupils to apply and practise their language skills.
