Modern Foreign Language (MFL)
At The British School Manila, students have the opportunity to study a Modern Foreign Language. This can be either Mandarin, French or Spanish. Language learning is done in a fun, stimulating way using songs, games, art, role play and ICT, developing oral skills as well as written. In addition, a key part of each course is the intercultural understanding where enquiry based mini units allow children to discover important cultural aspects of the country whose language they are studying. Mandarin is taught from reception and throughout the primary school. Spanish or French is introduced in addition to Mandarin in Year 5.
