MFL – Arabic

MFL at Iqra
In accordance with our mission statement we aim to provide a variety of experiences for the children – from improving literacy skills, to developing self esteem and widening cultural awareness, introducing a language at an early age has many benefits.

We believe that the main objectives of learning a Modern Foreign Language are to;

  • foster an interest in learning other languages;
  • introduce young children to another language in a way that is enjoyable and fun;
  • stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language;
  • encourage children to be aware that language has structure and that the structure differs from one language to another;
  • help the children develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries;
  • develop their speaking and listening skills;
  • Lay the foundations for future study.
