The Modern Foreign Languages Department at Bury Grammar School Girls is a highly achieving department who encourages pupils to explore different cultures and instills a love of language learning. We offer French, German and Spanish to GCSE and A level. In Year 7 pupils study French and choose either German or Spanish in Y8. Our department is staffed with language specialists and native level speakers. We are well resourced with modern equipment and an excellent range of teaching resources and authentic material. Girls are encouraged to speak in the target language and have contact with Foreign Language Assistants to further nurture their linguistic abilities.
Our varied extra-curricular programme includes MFL Film Club, Lingua Karaoké and le Café français for AGT students. For the first time in 2016, we introduced "Linguastars", a course run on two Saturday mornings, which aims to introduce Year 6 pupils to different languages. Whilst having a lot of fun, the participants learn phrases to impress on holiday and improve their understanding of different cultures.
The MFL department prides itself on its organisation of many school trips. We organise one of the longest running exchanges in the country with Köln Deutzer Gymnasium in Germany. We run exchanges to Dijon, France and Daimiel, Spain and run annual trips to Berlin, Madrid and Geneva.
