Dr Rosalba Biasini delivering an Italian taster during our Language Enrichment Event

We would like to thank all tutors involved in our last Routes into Languages event of the 2014/15 academic year, which took place on the 19th of May. This was a Language Enrichment Event, aimed at Year 8 students. We welcomed 70 pupils from schools in the North West, who attended our language tasters and cultural sessions, and the feedback from the visiting students and teachers was excellent. Students got involved in a variety of activities. These included learning how to play a Basque song with Enara, order a “panino” in Italian with Rosalba, and play “La Rueda de la Fortuna” with Marina and Jordi. Students also particularly enjoyed their guided tour of the University, especially the language learning facilities. We got very positive feedback, as you can see from the letter we received from one of the teachers who visited us:

“I am writing to express our thanks to you for yesterday’s event. The pupils from SFX (in their red blazers) had a great time and were very positive about their experience. The sessions were great! Please keep the programme going! We need all the help we can get in encouraging pupils to maintain their languages studies after 14 years of age.”

This is definitely an event we will repeat in the future. We are already preparing the programme of events for Routes into Languages at the University of Liverpool in 2015/16. Soon we will keep you posted with more exciting news. For more information, please contact: Nelson Becerra nelson.becerra@liverpool.ac.uk or Ana Almeida A.Almeida@liverpool.ac.uk
