Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Routes into Languages Revision Days 2014

Region: 
Yorkshire and the Humber

Routes into Languages held its ever-popular Revision Days on the 8th, 9th and 10th April 2014, welcoming students from a total of 11 different schools and colleges across the region to the University of Hull.

 

Revision sessions were held in German, Spanish and French at AS and GCSE level and were taught by experienced tutors, all of whom were native speakers of the respective languages.

 

Each group revised three different topics from the exam syllabus during their visit, in groups ranging in size from 5 to 17 students. Each group was also accompanied by a Student Language Ambassador throughout the day, enabling participants to get some 1:1 help with the exercises.

 

As the sessions took place in the University of Hull’s language labs, this was also a chance to get a taste of what it is like to study languages at a university.

 

The students who attended the event commented that they felt much more confident prior to their exams as a result. Some fed back that they appreciated the chance to use the target language with someone other than their normal teacher and that they really enjoyed working with the friendly Student Ambassadors and tutors. Others said that they might now consider studying languages to a higher level, which is great news!
