John Hampden Grammar School

Modern Foreign Languages

Welcome to MFL

Modern Foreign Languages are taught in an enjoyable and exciting way at JHGS, enabling the students to become confident language learners, many of whom go on to use their language skills later in life. We specialise in French, German and Spanish, all taught throughout the school from Year 7 up to Year 13. The teachers are all passionate about their languages, encouraging the boys to communicate at every opportunity in the foreign language.

We use the latest technology to enhance the students' learning of languages. Our fully-equipped languages lab uses Sanako software to enable students to carry out and record conversations in any number of groupings. We also use a wide range of media to allow students access to authentic materials.
