Department of World Languages – Celebration of European Day of Languages (EDL)

As the EDL was officially on Saturday 26th September, we celebrated the day before. Whilst EDL traditionally focuses on the European languages, BISB celebrates the global diversity of languages within our community.

Some classes took part in a World Languages Quiz based on the popular TV game show ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire?’ The contestants had to answer questions to prove their knowledge about the spread and use of languages throughout the world. We hear that some of Mrs Freeman’s Year 7 students became instant millionaires, but sadly they had spent it all by the time the Break was over.

Other classes tried their hands at making short films with the theme of learning a new language, something all of our students have to do from Year 3 upwards, and of course, for most of whom even English is a foreign tongue. The film-makers had to put themselves in the position of us teachers, and they had to try to teach some basic classroom language to a new learner of the foreign language within the confines of a two-minute film (e.g. ‘I don’t understand’, ‘Please could you help me?’, ‘May I go to the toilet, please?’, etc.). There is still some editing to do, but we hope to put the best entries forward into the Nord Anglia Global Classroom World Languages Challenge at the end of November. (See the gallery)
