Modern Foreign Languages

Bonjour! Hola! Ni Hao!

At Ernest Bevin College we really value languages and offer a challenging curriculum that will extend even our most able linguists. There are opportunities to take exams in languages other than those taught if students speak these languages at home or have sufficient knowledge to pass the exam.

The MFL department celebrate European Day of Languages in September each year. Staff & students in college who speak another language wore an 'I speak ....' sticker & there were a number of activities throughout the day including a hotly contested quiz.
