Mod. Languages


The Modern Languages department aims to promote the learning and teaching of Modern European Languages in a cooperative, enjoyable, enthusiastic and welcoming environment. We work in close liaison with the History department to run a very successful and thought provoking trip to the World War I battlefields of Belgium and to the cultural sights of Paris (including Disneyland!)


Any Modern Languages pupil is welcome to come for help with any aspect of their work, during Monday and Wednesday lunchtimes, in B27.


In addition, there is a wealth of online resources – games, podcasts, vodcasts, grammar and vocabulary exercises, and more – available on GLOW. Just click on the Faculty of Modern Languages link from ‘My Glow Groups’, or alternatively click on the link below to our TGS MFL GLOW Resources Blog, and click on the tab for your year group or level.


Senior pupils will have received a username and password for Scholar, a web programme of Heriott-Watt University, aimed at providing additional tasks and support for those studying Intermediate, Higher or Advanced Higher. We in the Modern Languages Department strongly recommend that our senior pupils make full use of Scholar, throughout their French, German or Spanish course.


Also available at any time for senior Modern Languages pupils wishing a quiet study area with computer facilities is the Modern Languages base, in B24.





Mr A Sutcliffe (Principal Teacher): French and German
