Languages, Literacy and Communication
Learning and experience in this Area aims to enable learners to communicate effectively using Welsh, English and international languages. It aims to encourage learners to transfer what they have learned about how languages work in one language to the learning and using of other languages. It aims to support learning across the whole curriculum and to enable learners to gain knowledge and skills in Welsh, English and international languages as well as in literature.

Good luck in year 7 and enjoy your English lessons!
In Ysgol David Hughes pupils study French and German, starting with French in year 7 and then adding German as a 2nd foreign language in Year 8. Communication and diversity are the main focuses during lessons. Through the use of puppets, role plays, games and songs pupils gain the confidence and linguistic ability to speak in the new language. In lessons, as well as at home, the use of technology such as Linguascope.com, Task magic and Kerboodle is encouraged. These facilitate independent learning and re-enforce the lessons.
Pupils are enthusiastic coming into bright and colourful classrooms. They feel a sense of achievement when they are able to make progress by using both the display walls and their individual vocabulary booklets.
As well as encouraging French and German in the lessons we celebrate the European Day of Languages, we run a pupil pen-pal system with a school in Lyon and welcome students from the University of Bangor to support various classes. In addition, the cultures of France and Germany are celebrated and pupils are encouraged to participate wherever possible.
