European Day of Languages

Posted 27th September 2023

Tuesday 26th September is European Day of Languages. At Dixons Brooklands Academy we value learning an additional language as it is a skill that can open doors in the world of work and also expand students' travel opportunities. This year, to celebrate EDL, the Spanish department ran a competition for students. On Tuesday 26th September, students were shown six short videos of our staff speaking in another language. Students were encouraged to make a note of which language they thought was being spoken in each video and by who. Students correctly identifying all six languages won a prize. The students (and staff) all loved watching the videos. We had over 150 students enter and around 80 winning entries!
