This week, students studying Modern Foreign Languages were treated to a special guest speaker from the University of Lancaster.
Cyrille Rollet, Senior Teaching Associate of the University of Lancaster, visited our students this week as part of the European Day of Languages, giving a series of talks on the importance of studying languages.
We are currently in an era where bilingual and multilingual talent are in high demand in the workforce, and now more than ever, teaching languages in schools and colleges is even more important. Learning a new language can open up a whole new world of ideas and perspectives. It can help students to see the world through different eyes and to better understand other people’s cultures, history and traditions.
We would like to thank Cyrille for speaking to our students, an incredibly useful insight into the study of languages.
Studying a language at Runshaw is both challenging and satisfying and requires a high level of student commitment; however, the rewards are immense and will equip you with a range of transferable skills including communication, critical thinking, research skills and creativity.
