Modern Foreign Languages

At Méan Scoil Mhuire Longford we offer both Spanish and French at Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate.

At Junior Cycle students study at a common level and at Leaving Certificate students can choose to study higher or ordinary level, with many of our students opting to study at higher level.

French and Spanish are both very popular languages to learn in Ireland and by allowing students to study one of these languages opens many future job opportunities and the possibilities to travel to other parts of the world.

Our Modern Foreign Language classes teach students how to communicate effectively in the target language they have chosen to study. They will also develop language and cultural awareness for the areas where their selected language is spoken.

Below you can see a sample of fantastic work completed by both our French and Spanish students in our school.


In 2019 Méan Scoil Mhuire hosted an event / competition titled the 'Extended Project' which allowed for many different students to showcase their incredible work from all different departments in the school. The overall winner was Daniela Rana who studies French. Daniela completed an amazing project on France titled ' Things you did not know about France' which can be seen below:

We also are very lucky to have some of our excellent first year students who were willing to gave us a sample of what they have been learning since September in Spanish class and what they enjoy most about the subject, take a look at what Orlaith had to say:
