European Language Day 2014

Modern Foriegn Languages department flying a mix of european languages
To celebrate the European Day of Languages on 25th September, Newquay Tretherras spent a whole week immersing themselves in a variety of cultural activities.
 
The week kicked off with Cyrille Divry of the theatre company ‘Le Chat Qui Reve’ engaging Year 8 students in role play to stimulate their learning of French.
 
Year 8 student, Aeryn Cooke said, “Learning like this is a lot more fun than lessons and actually helps you remember the language better.”
 
The official day of European Languages saw the corridors of Tretherras filled with a variety of oddly clothed people as each department of the school dressed up as a different country.
 
Years 10-13 Spanish students took part in a Flamenco session and the whole school were able to sample foreign food from the canteens.
 
Mrs Bishop, languages teacher at Tretherras said, “This week has been brilliant as it has given us the opportunity to raise the profile of foreign languages and promote cultural diversity.”
