Modern Foreign Languages

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, you speak to his head.  If you talk to him in HIS language, you speak to his HEART!

Nelson Mandela

We believe the importance of learning foreign languages cannot be overstated. At Mayfield, our girls do not just learn languages, they also discover how  to learn languages, whilst developing a genuine interest in the country or countries in which the language is spoken. Knowledge of other languages enhances employment prospects in every industry. Learning another language enables our students to experience the excitement of communicating, as well as allowing them to experience other cultures from the inside, enriching their experience of travel, and giving them a sense of perspective which will enable them to develop a balanced and tolerant world view.

In short, language learning is a lifelong adventure.
