The MFL department at All Saints Academy is to raise awareness of and develop a love of language and culture. Students will study the Spanish language and learn about the culture in Spain as well as other Spanish speaking countries in South America. Students will learn how to become confident communicators in Spanish using all four skills, speaking, listening, reading and writing and develop a deep appreciation of the vibrancy of Spanish culture.

MFL Prefect

Ella HoltonHi I'm Ella. I wanted to be the senior prefect of MFL because I have always had a great passion for languages. I wanted to share this and encourage the students to develop their knowledge of other languages and cultures. I would like to help our students achieve high grades in Spanish and support them in their learning about the language and culture in Spain.
