Big year for languages

We are delighted to announce that the Grove School/Optima Language Project is due to launch on Monday 26thSeptember 2011. This is a really important date in the languages calendar as it is also the 10th anniversary of The European Day of Languages.  This year approximately sixty pupils from Year 8 will take part in a languages challenge to develop and deliver a presentation designed to persuade people to learn languages. This is the third time that the Grove School and Optima Training have worked together

The judging event will take place on Friday 4th November at Newark Beacon with a team of judges from the local business community. The management at Newark Beacon have, once again, come up trumps and are letting us use their fantastic conference facilities to hold our event.

We are on the lookout for local business people who can talk to the teams about their experiences with languages and / or provide some mentoring in the run up to the judging event.

Please contact us for further details on how get involved. Follow us on Twitter for the latest project updates.
