Spotlight on Languages


On 11th November, twelve gifted and talented Fifth Year linguists travelled to the University of Bath where they joined over 150 Sixth Formers from south-west England to take part in the ‘Spotlight on Languages Day’. The day aimed to inform the students about language degrees at university and their employability prospects afterwards, as well as giving them a choice of student workshops to attend. These included beginners’ Russian and Italian, advanced Spanish and French and cultural and political topics such as, ‘The bus to nowhere? Young people politics in the 21st century’, ‘Spanish women: breaking stereotypes’ and ‘Latin America's place in the world’.
