Walhampton MFL department links up with schools in Solvenia and Turkey
In an exciting new collaboration between the MFL (Modern Foreign Language) Department and the English Department, pupils in Years 6 and 7 have been registered with the Council of Europe backed E-twinning website. www.etwinning.net
Each child has been given their own secure and unique username and password and can now communicate with children in two schools in Germany [ Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Hildesheim], and schools in Slovenia and Turkey. In the months a link with a French school near Strasbourg will also be established.
It is hoped that this fantastic opportunity will inspire children to find out about other cultures and encourage them to think positively about learning other languages. It will also allow them to practice their written communication skills.
