Westminster’s Language Immersion Saturdays have been designed to help GCSE and A Level students develop their language ability and gain more practical expertise in the language they are studying. The languages covered are French, German or Spanish (at GCSE, AS and A2 level) and Italian (at GCSE level).
The events are part of the Routes into Languages initiative and are hosted by the Department of Modern and Applied Languages.
Located in the heart of London, the Department has a long-established reputation for delivering an exiting range of opportunities to study European and non-European languages from various entry levels (also available in combination with other disciplines), cultures and societies and develop bilingual transfer skills in vocational contexts.
We are committed to providing high quality education that prepares students for rewarding and successful careers.
Times: 9.45am –2.15pm
Fee: £20 (refundable on successful completion of course)
Each level will be offered over two half days (Saturdays, 9.45am – 2.15pm)
For each level, the first Saturday will focus on listening and speaking, the second Saturday will focus on reading and writing
Each session will look at common grammar points, vocabulary expansion and practical language use, such as role plays, debates, comprehension tasks or writing in context
These events are hands on sessions, giving you an opportunity to work with languages in real life situations and practise key skills
Bookings will be taken strictly on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, and numbers per group/level are strictly limited to 1 5 students
Please note that if you are interested in booking a place on one of these two day events, you will need to commit yourself to the two days.
Please note: This year, we will also be running our popular four day A Level language workshops from 6 – 9 April 2010.
Our new Saturday events are not replacing these, but aim to give students extra language exposure.
