Learning through Languages

In December, Wellacre’s Year 9 Spanish and French linguists were visited by Mateusz Brocek, a Languages student from Manchester Metropolitan University.

Mateuz discussed education pathways into Language-based careers and highlighted the benefits of learning languages.   

Mrs Whitehurst, Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages, said:

“The students were really engaged as Mateusz was a great speaker. He talked about how they could work abroad and travel extensively at minimal cost, and also the benefits of speaking a modern foreign language.”

One Year 9 student said: “It was really interesting to see the all the fun things we could do by learning languages, not just working but travelling too.”
