linguists

If you have always wanted to inspire the next generation of linguists, then there’s no time like the present!  We urgently need help from anyone who can participate at these school language events:

 lagnuage events
Wednesday 28th June Flying High at RAF Museum in Cosford, Shropshire. As you can see we are moving into the West Midlands, so we realise that this will be too far for most of you. However, do you have any language contacts in the West Midlands that might be able to help? In particular we are looking for people with German – the level doesn’t need to be particularly high as the students are year 10, so first year of GCSE. We are able to pay reasonable expenses. French and Spanish will also be involved.

 

Wednesday 5th July International Day at Bishop Stopford School in Kettering for Year 8. We run a World Trade Game in the morning, where we welcome volunteers with any international experience or language. In the afternoon we are asked to run language tasters in more unusual languages, particularly Chinese. We can help with a template for this. If you can do either the morning or the afternoon, that would be really helpful, and if you could do the whole day, that would be fantastic. Our budget for this is rather limited, so we would prefer  volunteers living within a 30 – 40 mile radius of Kettering. The school is within walking distance of the station.

 

If you are free on either of these days and would like to get involved please contact us or feel free to share amongst your multilingual friends and colleagues!

 

Thank as always for your support 🙂
