Modern Languages teachers will set appropriate learning tasks via Microsoft Teams for S1-S2 classes. If you aren’t a member of a Team when you think you should be, then please contact Mr Sutcliffe on
If no specific tasks are set, you can access ‘Linguascope’ and work on the following units:
• Basics (red section)
• Self and Family (green section): clothes / personality / physical descriptions / hair and eyes / family members
• Everyday Life (blue section): daily routine / subjects / pencil case / classroom / time
• Food (Light green): Fruit / Veg / Party Food / Breakfast
For each Unit, go through the different activities then do the final assessment. Post your certificate in your class notebook page.
‘Languages Online’ is also an excellent resource along with ‘Quizlet’.
For S3 classes, the current priority is your Speaking Assessment for the ‘Modern Languages for Work Purposes’ Unit. We can conduct the assessment over Microsoft Teams. To give you plenty of time for preparation, and for us to check your what level your learning is currently at, the speaking assessments will start after the Easter Holidays. If you can, type your script into your Class Notebook page. If you can’t do this, please contact Mr Sutcliffe on the e-mail address above.
If you have limited or no internet access, please contact the School so that we can arrange for paper resources to be put together.

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.
