What is Modern Language?
MODERN LANGUAGES is based on pedagogical excellence in the art of instructing the candidate to teach forms of communication in a foreign language. Vocabulary and grammar naturally form the cornerstones of the language to be learnt along with a heavy emphasis on skills and application of patterns previously presented to encourage Higher Order Thinking Skills and independent learners who will not expect to be fed information but rather be taught skills to seek out the final answers for themselves.
