“I now know how important it is to learn a language and I would like to learn Arabic or Urdu” (Y8, William Hulme Grammar School Academy)
“This trip has made me realise that languages are not as difficult as people think they are. I am going to take French at GCSE” (Y9, Wellington School)
“I’d like to learn Urdu because this country is multicultural and I’d like to know more about this culture” (Sandbach school).
“Before I came here, I didn’t know Urdu was a language and it is very unusual; now I know it has an interesting culture.” (Y8, Wellington School).
“I really enjoyed the day learning new languages and experiencing other cultures. This trip has inspired me and many others to take languages to a further level.” – Year 9 pupil, Irlam and Cadishead Community High School, Manchester.
