Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Languages Tutors

Region: 
West Midlands

Language Tutors are student volunteers who visit a school once a week, to help classroom teachers to deliver language classes or after-school clubs. The Language Tutors might be studying languages at University, or might be native speakers of that language. Having fluent and interesting speakers of different languages can help to make the classes more exciting, and hopefully inspire more people to continue studying languages at a higher level, maybe even on to University.

This year, the Language Tutors project has supported 9 secondary schools in Coventry, Kenilworth and Leamington Spa, covering French, German, Spanish and Mandarin.
