Why are languages useful for your future? What are the different ways to study a language at university? School students will have a menu of languages to choose from. On the day, they will be split up in small group and the masterclass will include taster sessions in languages which they have probably not had the opportunity to try before, such as Italian, Russian, Japanese or Chinese. There will also be language-learning workshops in languages with which the students are familiar, including French, German, Russian and Spanish.

The German/French/Spanish and the GCSE-Level Russian sessions are meant to enrich the languages school students currently study. As far as is appropriate, topics will be chosen to tie in with cultural and historical aspects of countries where the languages are spoken, with GCSE-level subjects or with students’ personal interests.
