champion languages



We have two final events approaching at the end of this term for which we are now seeking some volunteers. Please help us to inspire young people to keep up their languages. Please do let us know if you are able to volunteer. We are able to pay expenses.


International Day, Wednesday 6th July 2016. In-school event at Bishop Stopford School, Kettering
This event is for their whole Year 8 (12 – 13 year olds) and we shall be running a World Trade Game in the morning for which we need people with a variety of languages and international backgrounds to help and advise (no preparation needed!). In the afternoon the students will be experiencing two different language tasters, so if you have an unusual language to offer we’d love to hear from you. If you come for the morning you will still be very welcome to stay and experience one of the other language tasters.

Into the Arab World, Friday 8th July 2016 at RAF Cranwell near Sleaford (regional event)
This year’s RAF event will allow students to experience a very different language in the context of the work RAF linguist. As well as the RAF linguists we are looking for others to help who have had experience in the Arab world and/or can speak Arabic, even if it is only a small amount that will help students who have never learnt Arabic before. In the afternoon we want to run some short cultural sessions of 15 – 20 minutes for around 12 students each time in a carousel , so if you might be able to run one for us on Arabic food, Arabic dress, Arabic script, business etiquette or something similar we’d love to hear from you.

We are grateful for any support you can give and we look forward to hearing from you!
