The new Routes into Languages website is currently in development and will be launching in the new year!


Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

We are poets! Nous sommes des poètes! ¡Somos poetas! Wir sind Dichter

Thursday, 20 April, 2023 - 15:30 to 16:45
Event Type: 
North West

This workshop will be hosted by the University of Manchester. Unleash the poet within you, have fun, be creative! Join poet Rebecca Hurst as she guides you through a number of writing prompts and exercises that will set you on your path to create poetry in the language(s) you currently study at school. Rebecca’s session will be delivered in English and classes can then complete the activities in the languages taught at their school, at a time that fits into their timetables. Work can be shared via an online exhibition on Padlet, which will be open to submissions for a week after the workshop. We will post a video with feedback and appraisals of some of the works presented.

Target audience: Years 10 & 11

Languages: Held in English, with materials to adapt to all languages based on the core vocabulary lists from your MFL lessons.
