On Thursday 8th November the whole of Year 11 had the opportunity to hear Old Blackburnian Ian Brown, talk about his personal experiences with regards to the value of languages within the world of business.

QEGS were also fortunate to have two visiting speakers from the University of Lancaster who explained the various routes available to facilitate the development of language skills.

Additionally, Pupils participated in workshops of languages which were completely new to them – Catalan with Mr Wéber, Italian with Ms Mariner and Japanese with Mr Cordwell.

This proved to be an eye-opening experience, which was very much enjoyed by the pupils.
