Language acquisition

The primary aim of language acquisition in the MYP is to encourage students to gain competence in a modern language other than their mother tongue. Students will develop their use of language(s) as a means of practical communication, providing a solid foundation of communication skills necessary for future study, work and leisure.

Language acquisition involves the integration of linguistic, cultural and social components to enable the student to develop an appreciation of a variety of literary and non-literary texts and offer insight into the cultural characteristics of the communities where the language is spoken. The MYP Language acquisition courses are assessed against four criteria, each with a maximum achievement level of eight.

MYP Language acquisition assessment criteria:

  • Criterion A: Comprehending spoken and visual text
  • Criterion B: Comprehending written and visual text
  • Criterion C: Communicating in response to spoken, written and visual text
  • Criterion D: Using language in spoken and written form
