Language Enrichment Event for Year 8 Pupils, at University of Liverpool on 24th February 2016

An interactive, exciting event that encourages 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: £5

Subsidised by Routes into Languages NW.

The events are only open to schools where languages are not compulsory. Priority will be given to schools that have not attended a Language Enrichment Event in previous years.

HOME Schools and Colleges Programme is sponsored by Routes into Languages North West.. This is a year-round education programme, which uses film, moving image and contemporary art to enrich students’ learning and bring innovation to the classroom. Throughout the year we have a variety of MFL study sessions specially programmed to support GCSE, AS and A2 students of French, German, Spanish, Arabic and Urdu, all led by native language speakers.

Each study session uses film as an exciting and accessible way to encourage students to use their language skills. Students will enjoy a specially selected film, screened in the target language with English subtitles. Sessions are supported by contextualising introductions, which provide information about the themes and characters of the film along with information about the film's director and place within film history and culture. Following the film, students complete language exercises based on the film using their new vocabulary.

Films are selected to complement GCSE, AS and A2 specifications and provide excellent material for topic-based work and oral exam preparation.
