The ever popular Language Enrichment Events are back for winter 2013/2014. Aimed at year 8 pupils, the events are designed to motivate language learners and encourage them to carry on with their languages to GCSE level. Our research shows that the events improve uptake at GCSE by 24%.

The events use language tasters and cultural activities in less widely taught languages to encourage the learning of languages generally.

Cost per pupil: £4 / Free for Widening Participation (WP) schools.

The events are only open to schools where languages are not compulsory. Priority will be given to schools who have not attended a LEE in previous years.
