MFL lessons now history?

Some schools in the UK are struggling to offer MFL to their pupils after a 25% drop in the number of EU teachers applying to work in our schools last year.

While MFL is no longer a compulsory subject most secondary schools recognise it’s importance to a well balanced curriculum and the fact that it contributes towards the EBacc measure of progress used by the DfE and OFSTED.

I loved MFL when I was at school and will never forget some of the language I picked up back in the 80s and 90s. I still even have copies of the textbooks we used for our GCSEs (think I bought them for revision) and I would hate to see them as curiosities on Antiques Roadshow thanks to Brexit.
