Mission Sentence At Brinkworth Earl Danby's School we believe that, "learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things." (Flora Lewis). Our curriculum aims to promote intercultural understanding and a love of language learning.  Children will know how important other languages can be in their future and lays the foundations for further foreign language learning.
Inspiring Quotes
  • A language is not just words. It’s a culture, a tradition, a unification of a community, a whole history that creates what a community is. It’s all embodied in a language. (Noam Chomsky)
  • Learning another language raises awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world and introduces an international dimension to pupils’ learning, giving them an insight into their own culture and those of others  (National Curriculum, 2013) 
  • To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world. (Chinese Proverb)
  • A different language is a different vision of life. (Federico Fellini)
