Uxbridge High School

SMSC in Languages

Modern Foreign Languages offer many opportunities to broaden cultural awareness, especially in A Level where many moral issues are raised (topics such as immigration, war guilt, nationalism, crime and punishment) and at GCSE where the environment is a key topic and students must consider their part in the well-being of the planet, before they can write about it in the target language.


KS3 teaching also promotes empathy and respect of other cultures and beliefs by discussing how daily life is different in the countries where the language is spoken.
