Year 8 Able Linguist Days
Wed 7 June 2017, 09:00 – 14:30 BST
These events provide year 8 pupils with a chance to develop their language skills. In the morning, there is an intensive mini-project in French, German or Spanish, led by the university s trainee language teachers. In the afternoon, there is a taster in a new language such as Portuguese or Chinese, plus a talk about languages and how they can be useful in the world of work. Throughout the day, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and talk to our current students.
These events will run from 9.00-14.30.
Please email MLOutreach@soton.ac.uk with any questions about the day.
