Some of our best linguists enjoyed a virtual taster session in A Level languages at Peter Symonds College on Monday 28th March. Students were in groups with other students from across the county and did a range of activities to work on their listening and reading skills. It was great to link up with language learners across Hampshire and learn something new.
