Language Enrichment Event for Year 8 Pupils

Wednesday, 15th Feb 2017     10:00am - 2.30pm         

Our ever-popular Language Enrichment Events for year 8 pupils are back. These are interactive, exciting events that encourage pupils to continue with their language studies at school and to think about the advantages of learning a new language or gaining a qualification in a language they may speak at home. These events have proved extremely popular with pupils and language teachers over the years and our research has shown a 24% increase in pupils taking language GCSEs after they attended the events.

The events use language tasters and cultural activities in less widely taught languages (e.g. Arabic and Mandarin) to encourage the learning of languages generally.

Cost per pupil: £9

Priority will be given to schools that have not attended a Language Enrichment Event in previous years.
