Emmaus has supported the Liverpool Languages Iniiative since its inception and were the first school to be awarded the Centre of Excellence for French in Liverpool. All the children receive two half hour lessons a week. One is with a native speaker and one with their own class teacher. The children are given the opportunity to visit France in Years 5 and 6: Year 5 stay in the Chateau du Broutel in the Somme Department on an outdoor education visit which also incorporates a visit to World War One battlefields and cemetaries. Whilst Year 6 visit Alpe D'Huez and complete a 6 day ski course. As well as this we try to create as immersive an environment as possible with French spoken, read or heard: on labels on objects around school, in prayers, on the dinner menu, doing the register, greeting people, in class instruction and on the newsletters. Our aim is for our children to have fun, become more confident in using a foreign language and ultimately to study a foreign language in secondary school.
