International Languages Week
The top results in Education Perfect rounded off a fantastic International Languages Week, which saw teacher Angela Gill organise a week of cultural and linguistic challenges and events, including competitions like: ‘Where in the world is my teacher?’ and ‘Match the custom to the country.’
Highlights were the alternative international menu on offer for students from the café next door (80 lunch orders were received) and the ice block challenge in which students greeted and introduced themselves in any language apart from English and were treated to an ice block for their efforts.
