Launch of Language Leader’s Award

06 September 2017

At BISS, internationalism is celebrated in our collaboration with famous international centres of excellence such as the UN, Juilliard (music, drama and dance) and MIT (science, maths and technical subjects).

  • Mandarin

 As part of this focus on Internationalism, we are launching for the first time a Language Leader’s Award. Open to students in Years 9-13, it aims to develop creativity and skills in three areas:

  • Teaching: Learning how to teach and teaching a session in a foreign languages MFL lesson to a primary or KS3 class and tutoring or being a buddy to another learner.
  • Event organisation: Taking an active lead in MFL / Mandarin events this year
  • Creating an MFL / Mandarin magazine: being part of the creative and production team

Students will also keep a log and reflect on what they have learnt.

These are the participating Language Leaders - all students who are passionate about languages, who want to make a difference using languages while developing leadership skills.
