Bromsgrove schools celebrate European Day of Languages

Bromsgrove Editorial 11th Oct, 2018

PUPILS from three schools in Bromsgrove got together to celebrate the European Day of Languages through studying Spanish speech, German jargon and French phraseology, writes Lauren Tiller.

Led by a group of South Bromsgrove High School Sixth-Form language ambassadors, visitors from Aston Fields Middle School and St John’s CE Middle School Academy were encouraged to practise their language skills and demonstrate their knowledge of the countries.

Students played Spanish, German and French versions of ‘Guess Who?’ to improve their linguistic skills as well as showing their cultural knowledge by placing key cities and tourist destinations on maps.

The head of languages at South Bromsgrove High, Helene Rogers, said: “The European Day of Languages celebrates the 6,000+ languages spoken around the world and is aimed to promote language-learning in a fun way.

“The sessions were a great success and our language ambassadors enjoyed sharing their enthusiasm for their chosen languages.”
