Modern Foreign Languages

Bonjour! Hola! Ni Hao!

Languages Day 2016

The MFL department celebrated European Day of Languages in September 2016. Staff & students in college who speak another language wore an 'I speak ....' sticker & there were a number of activities throughout the day.


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.
