Modern Foreign Language learning at Shuttleworth College is all about thinking big and chasing dreams!

It is more than a curriculum subject; it is way of discovering the world in all of its diversity.  Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. It fosters students’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. It also provides opportunities for students to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking, and read great literature in its original language.

Students at Shuttleworth College are encouraged to think like a linguist. Once they appreciate the skills they need to improve to learn, they appreciate that these are transferable and would allow them to learn any other language in the future. These skills could help them get a dream job for BMW, Versace, IKEA, Samsung or similar; where they may be expected to study German, Italian, Swedish, Korean… As a language learner, they will already understand the need to practise speaking, listening, reading and writing so they can communicate effectively.

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”

Nelson Mandela

“Spanish is my favourite subject because the class environment is interesting and encouraging. I want to continue with Spanish at A-Level and University because it will help me fulfill my ambition to become a translator.”
