Talented students at King George V (KGV) College recently took part in a range of activities to celebrate European Day of Languages on September 25th.
Claire Barré, French Course Leader, said: ‘European Day of Languages proved a really popular event at KGV.
Being able to speak a foreign language can really improve your career prospects in the global economy, and we are delighted with how our students participated in this event.’
Celebrated annually since 2001, European Day of Languages is an initiative of the Council of Europe which aims to promote the importance of linguistic diversity.
Corridors were filled with music from all over the continent and staff and students were treated to a selection of European foods in the College canteen. Students received advice on how speaking a foreign language can help to boost their CV and future career prospects. There was also a special lunch time screening of the popular animation ‘French Roast’ in the College’s new 120 seater performance theatre.
Fernando Alvarez Gonzalez, Spanish Course Leader, said, ‘It was great to see both staff and students enjoying the language activities.’
In addition to A Level courses in French and Spanish, KGV also offers a variety of language enrichment opportunities including GCSE Greek, Latin and Sign Language. The KGV Languages Department is planning a number of trips, including a visit to Paris and Barcelona, in the near future.
