Why Study Another Language?
Modern Languages at King's
Our excellent resources and facilities ensure that we engage linguists at all levels. All our classrooms are equipped with digital projectors and we have a dedicated ICT suite for languages. Our expert staff are highly skilled, motivated and constantly exploring new teaching tools and resources. Language learning at King's is lively, active and exciting.
Throughout the Fifth and Sixth Forms, our excellent native-speaker language assistants provide weekly conversation lessons for pupils.Their teaching supports the learning taking place in language lessons and is a vital component in our pupils' experience of the language and its country.
We challenge our pupils to broaden their horizons and take charge of their learning. Whether this is through a language exchange or through the opportunities our ICT facilities offer for independent study, we are proud of our confident and dynamic modern linguists. School exchanges are regularly arranged to Germany, and pupils are also able to arrange one-to-one exchanges with young people of their age.
A Whole New World
We firmly believe that successfully learning another language enriches your life forever. Knowledge of languages opens doors to another world. Nothing can replace reading a novel or seeing a play in the original language, and visits to foreign countries are so much more interesting if you can eavesdrop on conversations in buses and restaurants, read what is written all around you, and speak to anyone you meet.
