Run by SOAS, University of London, the Languages Challenge is now in its third year
The Languages Challenge is a collaborative project aimed at students in year 8, 9 & 10. Students have a choice of task and a choice of which languages they use in each of them. The aim of the challenge is to:
- provide students with opportunities to actively engage with languages;
- encourage independent study and a range of soft skills like team-work, planning, leadership and negotiation skills;
- raise awareness of the cross-curricular opportunities in language studies.
Students are encouraged to use oral as well as written skills, to plan each task, conduct research and produce multiple drafts. They must take different roles and complete a short reflective report for each task.
Teachers can download the Teachers’ Information Pack.
