Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Language & Culture Day in Hull

Region: 
Yorkshire and the Humber

On 30th June, students from Thomas Ferens Academy and Sirius Academy visited the University of Hull for a Language & Culture Day.

During the course of the day, the pupils learned about Paris and Madrid, finding out some of the sights that tourists can visit, as well as broadening their vocabulary so that they could describe these cities.

All of the new adjectives learned in the morning proved useful for the afternoon. task. Students were given an hour to produce a stand to promote either Paris or Madrid at a tourist fair. There was some great creativity on show and the teachers attending were really impressed that their pupils were able to use some of the language from the morning sessions, hopefully reinforcing this for their future studies.
