Choose Modern Foreign Languages (MFLs) to explore the culture and daily lives of people around the world, as well as developing your language skills.
If you are aiming to read languages at university and/or have achieved a high standard in languages in Year 9, then choosing two languages at IGCSE level is ideal. In general, we encourage all students to study at least one MFL, but we offer guidance on this based on each individual student.
IGCSE level study will consolidate and build on the language learning you have already completed, focusing on the key aspects of language learning: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
There is more emphasis on spoken and written accuracy, plus reinforcing topics and language skills covered in the last three years. You will be encouraged to extend your knowledge of grammar and to be more creative with language. All MFL subjects are taught primarily in the target language.
Choose from the following Modern Foreign Languages at IGCSE:
Develop your French language skills
Learn the German language with the support and inspiration of teachers who are passionate about this subject.
Study the world's most prevalent language
Study Spanish language and Hispanic culture
