At St Anne’s we teach French to all children as part of the normal school curriculum. We do this for several reasons. We believe that many children really enjoy learning to speak another language. We are committed to early language learning and believe that the earlier a child is exposed to a foreign language, the faster and more effectively the language in question is acquired. We believe that learning a foreign language helps all pupils develop their interests and curiosity in the similarities and differences between themselves and others. This includes learning about countries, cultures, peoples and communities. Learning a foreign language helps pupils to extend their communication skills and enhances self‐esteem.
