Subject Intent

At Brislington, we believe that languages are an important life skill which helps students to communicate in all areas of their life, but also with different types of people from different countries and cultures.  We want students to learn about different cultures and discover the world around them and become global citizens.

Communication: we want students to develop the skills of exchanging information by both speaking and writing
Proficiency: we want students to gain a high degree of knowledge and skills to become competent linguists
Resilience: we don’t shy away from the difficulties of learning a language and want students to develop the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and cope with highly demanding tasks.
