To teach students rigour and resilience as well as harvesting a love and a passion for a hidden talent or intrigue for a new language. At Manchester Communication Academy we want to teach communication skills and give our students confidence to become public speakers, prepared for a confident future, empowered to articulate their thoughts and give students ambition to aim high (universities) as well as raises aspiration. We want our students to enjoy their learning whilst developing a deeper understanding and respect for other cultures.
