Middle & Upper School European Day of Languages 2013

07 November

On the 27th of September, Middle and Upper school students and teachers had great fun celebrating The European Day of Languages. An amazing languages display mirrored our students’ skills and creativity: International adverts in English; Portuguese and German cartoons inspired by the Brothers Grimm stories; Spanish, Mandarin and French posters of famous artists; Contos e Lendas do Mundo illustrated and interpreted by the Form 5 students in Portuguese; British and American English compare and contrast tables; connectives and idioms in different languages; pictures and words reflecting our diverse community. The result of a few days of work was a rewarding satisfaction and more awareness of the importance of knowing and respecting other people, different languages and cultures.

Linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element to encourage lifelong language learning in our school. Therefore, in the afternoon of the Inter House Team Building event that took place on the same day, all subject departments organised stations where students were involved in activities that had as a common point “pluringualism/internationalism. CLIP’s spirit of community was, once again, the key for such a successful day.
