Language Enrichment Event for Year 8 Pupils

University of Liverpool

Tuesday 19th May 2015

10am - 2.15pm


The Language Enrichment Events for year 8 pupils is an interactive, exciting event that encourage pupils to continue with their language studies at school and to think about the advantages of learning a new language or gaining a qualification in a language they may speak at home. These events have proved extremely popular with pupils and language teachers over the years and our research has shown a 24% increase in pupils taking language GCSEs after they attended the events. 


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


Cost per pupil: £5

Subsidised by Routes into Languages NW.


The events are only open to schools where languages are not compulsory. Priority will be given to schools that have not attended a Language Enrichment Event in previous years.


Places will be allocated after the closing date of Friday 1st May 2015
