Learning another language presents opportunities for the reinforcement of knowledge, skills and understanding developed in other curriculum areas.
These opportunities can be exploited through:
aspects of English such as speaking and listening skills, knowledge and understanding of grammatical structures and sentence construction
aspects of mathematics such as counting, calculations, money, the time and the date
songs, alphabet, poems, rhymes and stories in other languages
international or multi-cultural work, for example celebration of festivals, storytelling
using ICT, for example e-mail with schools abroad, materials from the internet and satellite television
geographical and historical work relating to other countries.
