To mark European Day of Languages on Wednesday 26th September, the entire Foundation Year took part in a very well-received Italian Vocabulary challenge for beginners.
The competition was managed through a popular online tool that we use throughout the Modern Languages department,thisislanuage.com
which has a somewhat addictive vocabulary learning component known as “Nutty Tilez”. Here, pupils are encouraged to memorise high-frequency language in French, German, Spanish and now Italian, playing against each other and the computer as they bid to move up the various levels with increasingly complicated vocabulary.
The atmosphere in the Lewis Lecture Theatre was positively electric as the whole year group set about their task with tremendous enthusiasm. The four winners earned themselves a meal at ASK Italian restaurant in Malvern. Bravo!
