MFL (French & Spanish)

Bonjour! ¡Hola! 

Welcome to MFL, which stands for Modern Foreign Languages. At Co-op Academy Manchester you will study Spanish or French in year 7 until year 9, when you will choose whether you would like to continue with languages at GCSE level.

We hope you enjoy our page - take a look at our virtual classrooms, meet the teachers, and go on a virtual tour around France and Spain! 

À bientôt! ¡Hasta luego!

Virtual tours

Grab your passport and a pair of sunglasses and let team MFL take you on our "virtual tours" around Spain and France. By the end, you will really feel like you've jetted off somewhere amazing!  (Hint, this is best viewed on a tablet/computer, and you may find it easier to open in a new window)

Once you have completed one, or both tours, complete the task below.

Meet the team

Bonjour! I'm Miss Roberts (on the right). This photo was taken in Spain, and the girl I'm sat next to was my Spanish penpal from when I was in Year 7. We wrote to each other until we were 20!

Although I speak Spanish as well, I mostly teach French at CAM. I am the Director of Learning Zone (Head of Department) for MFL.

Ciao! I'm Mr Tatananni. I am Italian and I teach Spanish and French. In the picture I was backpacking in Cuba, where I learned Spanish. I love fishing and cooking, which means that yes, I can make a pretty decent pizza!

¡Hola! I'm Miss Nwokedi. This photo was taken of me trying on a traditional Spanish flamenco dress in a changing room at El Corte Inglés, a famous department store in Spain. 

I teach both Spanish and French, and I used to teach at a school in Malaysia! I am the Head of KS3 MFL.

Bonjour! I'm Miss Tchamoum. This photo was taken during my year abroad. I lived just outside of Paris for year!

I mostly teach French with a little Spanish too.

Bonjour! I'm Miss Lamkhantar. I am French, from Tours which is not very far from Paris!

I mostly teach French with a little Spanish too.


I am Miss Binks, a French and Spanish teacher at Coop Academy. Learning new languages and cultures has allowed to travel, make best friends in other countries, eat great food, understand the world better, and made it much easier for me to get a job. This picture is taken from when I lived in France! 

Example lesson

Take a look at an example of a typical Spanish and French lesson. We encourage our students to be as independent as possible during lessons, and offer a variety of different resources to help get them 'unstuck'.
