Visit from Manchester University

MFL Manchester University Visit

On Monday 6th November we were delighted to welcome Sonja Bernhard, School Liaison Officer, from the University of Manchester. She delivered a couple of talks to our Year 9 students about the value of language learning and they were very interested to hear of Sonja’s experiences as a native German speaker living and working in Manchester. She also spoke to Year 12 as part of careers week and shared lots of advice about combining language study with other subjects at university. The students were able to appreciate that language learning not only involves acquiring vocabulary but also gives us an understanding of the culture of other countries.
