Extended Learning Days Year 7 Languages – Summer Term 2016

On the 4 and 5 July, Year 7 students took part in intensive Language Learning Days. Throughout each day, three tutor groups worked on four activities, with different people experiencing different languages and cultures.

The groups had a taster of a “traditional” French breakfast, trying out what may have been eaten across the channel on a day to day basis. We tried pain au chocolať and jus d’orange, which, in my opinion, were delicious! Also, there was a treasure hunt that had to be completed in French. There were teams of three students who were all competing against each other, trying to see who could complete the Inspecteur Hasland booklet.

Furthermore, there were language sessions – lessons held by the visiting Head of the Arabic School. In this period, we learned how to speak a little of the Arabic language and how to write the letters of the Arabic alphabet. There was also a language session delivered by Language Ambassadors from the University of Sheffield, where we were taught a bit of Russian, French and Spanish. This gave us a small taster of what these languages are like. Personally, I found the Russian language very interesting because I had never been taught it before, or considered being taught it. Moreover, we were told where Arabian is spoken and that it’s different for every place it’s spoken, which is interesting, and maybe something that you wouldn’t expect.

We played a little pétanque, which is a French game that is very popular. I enjoyed it, even though I wasn’t that good at it!

Overall, the Language Learning Days were really fun because we got to explore some languages and cultures that we may not have come across before. The benefits of learning a few different languages would mean that it opens up a variety of jobs for the future: if you decide to live in a country, you will know the language, or even if you want to do it for fun, then it’s still interesting. I know for a fact that there was a little dancing included in the Arabian culture too!
