Language Enrichment Event for Year 8 Pupils

Date: 8 January 2015 Time: 10.00 am - 2.15 pm

Venue: tbc

Aimed at year 8 pupils, this interactive and exciting event will be designed to 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. Similar events have proved extremely popular with pupils and language teachers over the years and our research has shown a 24% increase in pupils taking 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

This event is only open to schools where languages are not compulsory. Priority will be given to schools who have not attended a Language Enrichment Event in previous years.
