Some of our Gifted & Talented linguists visited Bath University for a Spotlight on Languages Day. Brian Kendall and Stephanie Verwey in Year 11, were asked to compile the thoughts on the day from the students who went and this is what they wrote:

The day was amazing and explained many parts of the importance of languages and communication.  The day started with a talk from one of the Italian tutors from Bath University explaining where his love of languages has come from, and how important it is to be able to communicate with others.  We then participated in a variety of different workshops whilst some of us built on our knowledge of French and German, others learnt about French humour or took a beginners class in Italian.  After a tour of the campus, we heard from some previous Bath University students about careers, employability and the importance of learning languages.”

The message from Bath University was clear - knowing just English is not enough and that students should learn a foreign language.
