Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

Our team of experts offer an award-winning service that is delivered by experienced Foreign Language Tutors (FLTs) with native level language skills, who are recruited and trained by a dedicated team of Advisory Teachers. For over a decade, Liverpool has been at the forefront of Modern Foreign Language (MFL) in Primary Schools, delivering MFL teaching via our vibrant and highly trained team.

Our accolades include:
  • European Language Label for Outstanding Contribution to Languages in the Primary Sector
  • European Award for Languages
  • Spanish School of the Year for four consecutive years
  • La Jolie Ronde Primary Language Prize

Our team of 22 Foreign Language tutors is trained by four Advisory teachers with extensive backgrounds in teaching French and Spanish. The FLT team is made up of native level speakers who come from a range of countries across the globe, including: France, Morocco, Sénégal, Spain, Peru, Columbia and Mexico. They all have two things in common - they have all found a home from home in Liverpool and they all have a passion for teaching languages.

We believe that an early start in language learning taught by a native level speaker lays firm foundations for language learning. Lessons are dynamic and interactive and set in a cultural context. We hope to instil young learners with a love of languages and a curiosity about the wider world which will stay with them through life.
