Languages Week at Bishops’
European Day of Languages on the 26th of September, has been celebrated every year since 2001. Amongst the 47 member states, there are over 200 European languages spoken. All member states are encouraged to discover more about languages and this stems from the belief that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater tolerance, respect and intercultural understanding.
Here at Bishops’, the MFL department has launched ‘Languages Week’ to celebrate the diversity of languages spoken in our area, our country and across the world. Despite Covid guidance restricting us from organising activities such as food tasting and speed dating language learning, we were still able to enjoy many other events. Form time featured tutor group quizzes with foreign idioms and animal noises to decipher as well as tongue twisters. It was great to see the cogs of the students’ brains whirring early in the morning! Years 7, 8 and 9 took part in Spelling Bee competitions where students were challenged to learn the meaning and spelling of 24 French or German words. This was also preceded by high quality group work and discussions on effective ways to memorise words and facts which would have a positive effect on all aspects of the curriculum. Students were most impressive in embracing the challenge and many were rewarded with BESt points, stationery prizes and languages stickers. The below photo is of our top Year 9 performers in the Spelling Bee. Congratulations to everyone who took part!
Remember, language learning brings benefits to young and old and it’s never too late to learn a new language and enjoy the many opportunities this brings!
