Learning languages involves communication appropriate to the sociocultural context in which the language is used. The form of this communication is such that it includes productive language use and the cognitive processing of information.
Communication of ideas, information and feelings incorporates both linguistic and non-linguistic aspects in a dynamic way. Learning another language extends, diversifies and enriches the students’ way of thinking.
Languages are a means of communicating across cultures and promoting sociocultural awareness and the understanding of the richness of human diversity and difference. They prepare the students for meaningful and purposeful lives in a linguistically multicultural society.
The Languages Curriculum provides students with the opportunity to explore, experiment and be challenged in their learning. It is designed to be engaging and multimodal in its delivery in order to empower the students with the knowledge and skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking. As teachers; we strive to help students in their proficiency development.
This enables students to communicate effectively with other speakers of that specific language and builds a foundation for the students to achieve their full academic potential.
