Modern Foreign Languages at Ridgewood


At Ridgewood, we aim to develop students’ experience of language acquisition and encourage curiosity about other languages.


Learning a language enriches the curriculum and provides excitement, enjoyment and challenges for students. It enables learners to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life.


The natural links between languages and other areas of the curriculum can enhance the overall teaching and learning experience.


Language also lies at the heart of ideas about individual identity and community. Learning another language can do a great deal to shape students’ ideas in this area as well as giving them a new perspective on their own language.
