    Having read the white paper and other documentation, I am still unsure as to what constitutes a MFL?
    Traditional MFL OK... French, Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Russian
    Latin, Greek.... OK
    Welsh as a Second Language

    What about Panjabi, Gujerati, Polish (lots in my school!!!), Portuguese (a few also), Bengali, Urdu....? Do these count? When will we find out so we can plan the curriculum to jump through this hoop for a few years befroe the next initiative?

    Clarification if anybody knows please.

    No - as I don't think that the govt. know yet. [​IMG]
    As they've allowed Hindi IGCSE, I'm sure they'll allow some more of the above.
    I reckon they'll allow most of them, as it'll add pressure to inner city schools to promote History / Geography.
