The teaching of modern foreign languages has experienced some significant developments over recent years with a revival of Key Stage 4 languages through the EBACC – the requirement that MFL is included in the measure of GCSE success in school performance.
There is also a renewed interest in languages such as Japanese and Mandarin.
The GCSE format of controlled assessment in speaking and writing is likely to change in the coming years.
Primary School languages have become more embedded through the Key Stage 2 framework. There is a wealth of online language-learning resources for all key stages and these already form the basis of classroom practice.
