College Celebrates Journée Européenne Des Langues 2020
Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans, of all ages, are encouraged to learn more languages. Incredibly, across the continent, there are some 24 official languages and over 200 different spoken dialects. Here in the UK four out of five adults regret not having learned another language, but that is something no Princethorpe pupil will ever be able to say.
At the College there are many opportunities to get excited about languages and celebrating European Day Of Languages is just one of them. Set up by the Council of Europe in 2001, Journée Européenne Des Langues promotes the importance of language learning and the cultural diversity that Europe provides.
Ahead of European Day of Languages on Saturday 26 September, the House and MFL teams challenged Year 7 pupils to take part in a fun break-time language trivia quiz. In their first House competition, the Year 7s gathered excitedly to answer a wide range of language-based questions hoping to win points for their House.
For the rest of the school there was House Challenge 2 and a week to creatively explore European and International cultures, we can’t wait to see what pupils decide to do. We know it will be great fun whilst helping to inspire all our pupils too.
