4. Language, Literacy & Communication

Languages, Literacy and Communication enable us to analyse and understand the world around us. By being supported to become successful in this area of learning and experience, learners are therefore also supported to succeed across the whole curriculum.


The Languages, Literacy and Communication Area of Learning and Experience (AoLE) will enable all learners to gain knowledge and skills in Welsh, English and international languages as well as in literature. Where applicable, its provision will include opportunities to learn Welsh and English as additional languages (WAL/EAL) and to learn other home or community languages too.


In all cases, it will encourage learners to be aware of the links between languages as they develop an appreciation of the origins of words and an interest in language patterns. They will be encouraged to transfer what they have learned about how languages work in, for example, Welsh and English to learning and using international languages. This multilingual approach will ignite learners’ enthusiasm and provide them with a firm foundation for a lifelong interest in learning subsequent languages and in literature from Wales and the world.
