Event details

***PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS REACHED MAXIMUM NUMBERS. PLEASE EMAIL MLOUTREACH@SOTON.AC.UK IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITING LIST. HOWEVER, PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE WAITING LIST IS VERY LONG*** These events provide year 8 able linguists, selected by their school from the most able pupils, with a chance to further develop their language skills. In the morning, there is an intensive mini-project in French, German or Spanish, led by our university's trainee language teachers. In the afternoon, the programme will allow all pupils to try a new language by attending a taster in a new language such as Portuguese, Chinese or Italian, hence developing awareness and raising interest in expanding their love for learning languages.


  • There is a strict limit of 10 students from each school for this event, due to the popularity.
  • Lunch is not provided for students on the day.
  • Attendance at the whole day is expected.
  • Bookings are only confirmed once you receive the confirmation email.
  • Nearer the time of the event we will get in touch again to check final numbers and names. A final programme, risk assessment and parking permit will be emailed to teachers approximately one month before the event.
  • Where schools may have some native speakers of French, Spanish and/or German that wish to attend, we would ask you to carefully consider if the day will be of benefit to them.
