Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity Day

Region: 
Yorkshire and the Humber

 

Routes into Languages helped Winterton Community Academy to run their Cultural and Linguistic Diversity Day.

 

Routes provided four Student Language Ambassadors for the event. The ambassadors came from Spain, Italy, Peru and Austria and presented a variety of interesting facts about their respective countries. The Year 7 pupils who took part were particularly excited about Austrian food and the pictures of Carnival in Italy!

 

Student Language Ambassadors play a key role in the work of Routes into Languages. Whether UK students studying foreign languages, or international students spending time in this country, they are uniquely placed to inspire young people and to show them how studying languages can be beneficial to them.

 

The event at Winterton showed clearly how Student Language Ambassadors can make a big impact. “Our pupils are now more curious about going to visit the different countries to be able to experience the life, language and culture on a first-hand experience,” said Eleanor Elliot, Subject Leader of Modern Foreign Languages at Winterton.
