Film and Culture Event (Year 10 and 11)

Wednesday 16th November 2016 , 10.00am – 2.30pm

University of Liverpool

The Film and Culture Event (FACE) is for language students in Year 10 and 11.  It is designed to highlight the benefits of learning languages through a careers  talk and to show the fun way in which languages can be taught with a film session (in French, Spanish or German). There are also two taster sessions in a less commonly taught language such as Arabic, Farsi or Chinese Mandarin to highlight the diverse range of language study options available at a higher level.

The aim of the event is to boost students’ enthusiasm for language learning so that they continue with their languages to ‘A’ Level and beyond. The event is an excellent opportunity to show pupils the variety of languages on offer and a range of fun ways they can learn.

These events are usually very popular and places will be allocated after the closing date of Monday 31st  October 2016.

There is a charge of £9 per pupil to cover some of the costs.
