Modern Foreign Languages


Subject Overview:

Bienvenue!                        ¡Benvenido!

Languages are essential for communication both at home and abroad. Learning another language is both fun and useful. Being able to speak a foreign language can open up a world of possibilities for working and travelling abroad.

With the increase in tourism in Northern Ireland, acquiring language skills has never been more important.

In the languages department we focus on improving self-confidence and developing communication. We enjoy active learning and believe that anyone can learn another language.
