Modern Languages to welcome Year 12 students for Study Day

Modern Languages

Modern Languages will welcome 40 Year 12 students from 6 schools across the south east to Avenue Campus next Wednesday 18th January for a Year 12 Study Day. This will be the first of two events in the year for Year 12 students to think about studying languages at university. There will be sessions on cultural topics, grammar and speaking in French, German or Spanish, plus the chance to do an ab initio session in another language (such as Chinese or Portuguese). There will also be a student panel session, where students will have the opportunity to ask our own students about studying languages at university, and find out first-hand about the year abroad and other aspects of student life.

Visiting students may be interested to check out our resource Get Ready for Languages, which aims to guide you to useful information about your life as a Modern Languages student at Southampton. You can read about staff in the Modern Languages department, discover what sorts of things Modern Languages students, past and present, are getting up to, and explore some of the modules you might decide to do. All this and more! To keep updated on Modern Languages events and languages-related news, you can also follow us on the Languages at Southampton blog, and on Twitter @ModernLangs.

We welcome all students to Avenue Campus and hope you enjoy your time with us!
