Students showcase Spanish speaking skills

Students put their Spanish language skills to the test during a visit to The University of Birmingham.

A group of Year 12 students visited the university for a Spanish Languages Day, attending workshops on A Level topics including Spanish history, gastronomy and cinema. They also got the chance to look at authentic items from countries including Peru, Mexico, Cuba and Ecuador.

All of the workshops were conducted in Spanish and the students also attended a talk about the undergraduate courses offered in Modern Foreign Languages at the university.

Mrs A.M.Darby, Head of Modern Foreign Languages, added: “The group then went to Tapas Revolution for a late tapas lunch where they sampled a variety of authentic Spanish tapas and conversed with the Spanish waiters in the target language. 

“A most enjoyable day was had by all.”
