At Northbrook Primary Academy, we believe that MFL should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of other languages around the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another  language and understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and gain a new perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own culture and those of others.
