Modern Foreign Languages

The Modern Foreign Languages Department at Trinity Academy has two main languages, French and German.

Students study French in Year 7 with the most able students starting German in Year 8.

In Key Stage 3 the department uses Expo and Echo course books. In Key Stage 4 we use Expo and Echo GCSE Higher and Foundation course books. For A Level we use Elan and Zeitgeist. At both GCSE and A Level we use the AQA examination board.

To enhance the students understanding the department runs a trip to France or Germany in Year 8.
