Students attend university Language Festival

Students attended the Language Festival at the University of Bristol; they received a variety of workshops in Spanish, French and German, each with a distinct focus (e.g. performance in the target language; the target language culture; language learning and ICT). 

They also and had the opportunity to experience a taster session in a new language (Italian, Japanese, Swahili, Arabic and Welsh)

The aim of the visit was to raise attainment and help to retain pupils in the classroom for GCSE. It was an opportunity for younger students of Modern Languages to engage in innovative, interactive workshops devised and delivered by PGCE students and Student Ambassadors for Modern Languages.

The workshops enabled the students to develop their listening and speaking skills in languages, as well as boost their confidence in learning languages.
