The new Routes into Languages website is currently in development and will be launching in the new year!


Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Language on Film DVD

Routes into Languages East has commissioned a collection of materials to use with year 9. The materials consist of about one hour's pre-teaching for the film and one hour's teaching after watching the film. Series Editor is Rachel Hawkes of Comberton Village College.

We were very fortunate to be able to watch the films at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse, having piloted the materials with year 9 pupils from local Cambridgeshire schools.

Let us know what you think...  

We continue to develop more materials - so far, we have the following:


Netto (not suitable below Year 9)


Neuilly Sa Mere (not suitable below Year 9)

Voces Inocentes

El Misterio del Paz

Les Choristes

Die Rote Jacke - materials by Benjamin Pohl

Ausreisser - materials by Benjamin Pohl
