"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."
Nelson Mandela 

Learning a foreign language helps to open up children’s eyes to the wider world as well as honing their language skills at a time when their language-learning abilities are greatest. Children at St Michael’s learn French starting in Year 2 where they are taught mainly through songs and games. As they move through Key Stage 2, they begin to ask and answer questions about themselves and the world around them. They will learn to read and write some French and will learn about the culture and life in French-speaking countries. Year 5 have a day trip to France giving them the chance to put into practice what they have been learning.
