Modern Foreign Languages Spelling Bee
From Head of MFL, Mrs Jones: “In the autumn, all Year 7 students learning Spanish and French learnt the alphabet in those languages, and were trained to spell words out in their lessons. The aim of the Spelling Bee is for students in Year 7 to practise and improve their vocabulary, spelling and memory skills in a foreign language. By March, students had to know 150 words: in one minute, they trained to translate as many words as possible into French/Spanish, and spell them out in that language. For the third year running, Trinity hosted the MFL Spelling Bee regional final, welcoming a wide variety of schools from around the North West. The MFL department and Sarah Schechter, project manager of Routes into Languages, organised this big event, assisted by many fantastic student ambassadors. Our judges and callers ranged from our own Sixth Form students to our University language assistant volunteers, visiting teachers and Sonja Bernhard, from the University of Manchester.”
