Ambassador-led Talks and Workshops


Our trained Capital L Language Ambassadors are available and eager to share their knowledge and experience with your pupils.
We offer school visits for a variety of age groups to support aspiration and attainment in language studies. Please see a brief description of the ambassador-led sessions we offer to schools below: 
  •  'Why Study Languages?' presentation - available for all year groups from Y7 - Y11. This talk focuses on the social, professional and cognitive benefits of studying languages at GCSE, A Level, and University. Ambassadors, reflecting on their own experiences, demonstrate the various options available for studying languages, share their experiences of studying abroad and highlight potential careers for language graduates. The talk is interactive and aims to broaden students' view of languages, by highlighting the importance of languages in a multilingual and multicultural world.
  • 'Why Study Languages at University?' presentation aimed at Sixth Form/ College students. This talk extends our 'Why Study Languages?' presentation to include more detailed information on applying to study languages at university, options and expectations, and the study skills required. The presentation aims to support students' transition to university. 
  • Language & Culture Workshops - available for all year groups from Y7 - Y11. These workshops provide pupils with the chance to explore a language via cultural artefacts such as music, dance, art, and more. Teachers may submit a request for a particular language or we can provide options according to the interests of our Language Ambassadors. These workshops are highly interactive and aim to inspire pupils to learn a language through interaction with diverse cultures. Previous workshops have included 'Japanese and Manga', 'Spanish around the World', 'Russian and Space Travel', and 'Swahili and the Lion King'.
