Bonjour! Ça va? Tu t’appelles comment? If you can’t answer these questions yet, then by the end of the first Half Term at Lostock, you will be able to! Learning a foreign language is fun here and French lessons include a lot of games, drama and use of information technology, but French is also important for communication in English. Many of our higher level words in English come from French and students who study French improve their English comprehension skills. Studying French expands students’ English vocabulary and enables them to understand better how their own language works. Being able to speak more than one language also prepares students for the global market they will be working in as adults.
