Welcome to Modern Foreign Languages

At Tibshelf, students learn either French or German or both languages from Year 9 onwards. Languages at the school are recognised as an important and essential part of the curriculum, especially in light of the introduction of the English Baccalaureat.

In MFL lessons, students learn not only to communicate in a different language through a variety of teaching & learning strategies, but also to appreciate different cultures. A sense of achievement is gained from successful communication and speaking another language helps to build confidence, as well as being highly desirable by employers and Further Education establishments.
