Home Support:

Reflection and practicing language skills at home is a vital part to your daughter’s learning: Visit the MFL Frog page for verb tables, grammar mats, reading resources for support while doing homework.  For vocabulary learning and for speaking assessments it would be very helpful if you could test your daughter to support her learning.
