Our aims and opportunities

Learning a Foreign Language widens our perspectives and broadens our appreciation of wider culture.  We aim to provide our students with an understanding of cultural diversity, through learning about customs and ideas as well as learning to communicate in the target language of French or German.

Building confidence in our learners is a top priority for us at Smithdon.  Students are encouraged by positive reinforcement of their efforts, as well as being guided to appreciate the efforts of their peers – we emphasise the enjoyment of speaking a different language and having a go.

We also offer our Smithdon students additional opportunities to give them a wider experience of how important languages are and how much fun they can be too! Use the links below to find out more about two of our recent opportunities:
