Hello my name is Mrs Gill and what a pleasure it has been to start working here as the new Curriculum Leader for Modern Foreign Languages at Penwortham Girls’ High School. I am so excited to be starting here and joining a super team in the languages department and I look forward to all the exciting opportunities that lie ahead of us all over the coming months.
Having taught in Lancashire for 17 years, I know what a wonderful school PGHS is and I look forward to immersing you all in the interesting countries of France and Germany. We have lots planned over the next year and despite certain things having to be put on hold, there are still lots of activities and events that can take place that we can all enjoy together to share our love of languages and their cultures. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all my new students over the last five weeks and I am excited to see all the superb work that they can produce over this coming year.
What a busy first few weeks we have had in the languages department! We have spent quite a lot of our time setting all our students up on Quizlet, Duo Lingo and Active Learn. These are such useful apps and websites to use to further your language learning. They will really enhance your language learning and help you to discover the language further and the culture of France and Germany even more. Covid-19 has not dampened our spirits at all as alongside this, we have really hit the ground running and have already celebrated two big events in the languages calendar, European Day of Languages and Tag der Deutschen Einheit.
