Since 2001, the European Day of Languages has been a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the diverse linguistic tapestry of Europe and beyond. With over 225 languages native to Europe alone, not to mention those that have arrived through migration, our continent is a true melting pot of cultures and languages!
In our KS3 lessons last week, we delved into the fascinating world of European languages. Our pupils embarked on a linguistic journey, learning various ways to say hello in different languages. They also put their detective skills to the test in a thrilling guessing game, trying to identify which language was being spoken.
To make the celebration even more delicious, pupils were invited to enjoy some mouth-watering treats at lunchtime. We had a delectable spread featuring pain au chocolat, chocolate crepes, and pretzels – a delightful culinary tour of Europe!
Mrs. D Schlicht, our newly appointed Head of Modern Foreign Languages, shared her thoughts on this special day: “The European Day of Languages is a reminder of the beauty of linguistic diversity and the importance of fostering understanding among different cultures. It’s heart-warming to see our pupils embrace this opportunity to explore new languages and traditions.”
