Trying to encourage school children to study languages I spoke at the Modern Foreign Languages Conference on Tuesday 12th July organised by Lordswood Girls’ School. I delivered 2 sessions each with two quizzes, to give the students a break from my presentation 😉
I also attended Nabila Semouh’s excellent Arabic language taster session, where I learnt a few more phrases (OK words) to add to the handful I already knew. Nabila teaches Arabic at The University of Warwick’s Language Centre.
If it will help your students please feel free to reuse my Doug Lawrence Presentation Languages Why Bother and quizzes about International Celebrities Quiz and International Fashion Designers Quiz which hopefully encourage students to think about international influences.
If you’re in the language industry take the opportunity to be involved in education and help students understand the fulfilment and excitement languages can bring to their lives and careers.
