Learning the French language within the curriculum provides opportunities for children to broaden their knowledge of culture and language in general. Their language skills are developed through oracy, such as song, games, storytelling, and topics are related to real-life scenarios, such as weather and school/home life.
Children approach their learning through teamwork, pair work, and whole-class engagement. As learning a foreign language can be quite daunting for some, these learning strategies enable children to share ideas within a safe and comfortable environment; allowing children to support and encourage each other. Children are also encouraged to prompt one another on making improvements upon grammatical errors and pronunciation.
Learning a second language can facilitate children with skills which they can apply within other areas of the curriculum, such as speaking and listening skills, identifying differences and making comparisons within the English language and confidence building.
