European Day of Languages 2013

Students will be celebrating our European Day of Languages, on Tuesday 26 September, where students will have the opportunity to consider our global community and teachers use the opportunity to explore wider elements of the curriculum in their individual lessons.

Teaching in other Departments often include a maths lesson in Welsh, another in German, Indian traditions including Bhangra dance in drama, making, studying and recording traditional Chinese music, studying the origins of science in the Arab cultures, as well as a variety of languages being taught in the MFL department.

“Languages plays a key part in the development of young people as they prepare themselves to be part of the global economy. We have been very impressed with the manner in which our students seek to develop their own knowledge and understanding and this week has provided a further opportunity to engage in this.”

Paula Le Maréchal, Head of Modern Languages
