There are already many reasons to celebrate this first half term in the languages department and not just the European Day of Languages and the Day of German Unity. We have had lots of fun working on our Quizlet flashcard sets. This year we have launched our use of Quizlet to practise and help our students with their vocabulary learning. Quizlet is a fantastic tool to make flashcards and practise vocabulary in a fun way. Just 10 minutes a day can make a huge difference to learning and Quizlet makes learning fun. Each week, our classes have vocabulary uploaded and it allows our girls to compete in a tournament to be the quickest at match up but also the most accurate in the quiz. We have also launched our active learn website which gives our students access to reading, listening and vocabulary tasks linked to our schemes of work. If you don’t have log-ins for Quizlet and Active Learn, please email email@example.com
Year 7 have enjoyed learning how to greet each other, give their name, age and say where they live. They have also learnt the German alphabet and even taught someone at their home the German alphabet. Lots of family members have enjoyed the teaching you have done, girls! Well done! Some Year 8 girls have started their learning journey in French and are really enjoying learning about greeting people, numbers and talking about family members and have made amazing progress in such a short space of time. Keep up the good work!
