Students taste foreign cultures during Languages Week

The week beginning Monday 24th February saw a special programme of events in the Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Department.

Languages Week activities included setting up special breakfast clubs on separate days for Spanish, French and Latin.

Students enjoyed eating the specially prepared foods and taking part in quizzes and dressing up.

Ms Matias, Curriculum Leader of MFL, said, “The week was aimed primarily at Year 9 students to encourage them to consider taking a language for their GCSE options. We were also pleased to gain some sponsorship from local businesses for the quiz prizes. These were Chiquitos, Café Rouge and Metro Italia. They provided free two-course meals and beverages as the prizes.

"Our student MFL ambassadors in Year 10 created and led the quizzes and particularly enjoyed the fancy dress. They were wonderful role models to the younger students. We also did a special Latino dance event on the last day of the week. Much fun was had by all – ¡Olé!”
