Celebrating Maths Appreciation Day

On 19 January, the Primary School hosted an exciting Maths Appreciation Day. The day’s activities aimed to encourage the students to appreciate the fascinating world of mathematics. The day started with an engaging discussion and presentation about where maths is used in in our daily lives, highlighting the omnipresence of the subject. Without maths, the world around us wouldn’t exist as we know it today since technology, engineering, medicine, etc. are all dependent on mathematical calculations!

Stress, Rhythm and Intonation in Phonetics

When we speak, the way that we sound out the words and sentences is known as pronunciation. Depending on what your native language is, when you speak English, you will have an accent. Someone’s accent depends on from where in their Anglophone country they come and indeed which country. English language learners often want to speak the Queen’s English because it is cited as being the gold standard of pronunciation. There is also Received Pronunciation [RP], or the old BBC English, which is English without a regional accent. This suggests that the listener cannot tell from where the speaker comes.
