On Friday 5th January, 33 members of year 8 had the opportunity to go to Manchester Metropolitan University to take part in their 'Making Foreign Languages an Option' event. The day was run by current students at the university who were on hand to answer any questions our students had. Throughout the day, students had language sessions in French or Spanish and all students were given an opportunity to try a taster session in German. The sessions helped to put language learning into 'real life' scenarios and students were able to see them just how far languages could take them in life. The university noted how exceptionally behaved our students were and they proved to be excellent linguistic ambassadors for Longdendale!
