About the Event

Taking place online in April and May, our 'Language Lift' sessions are aimed at GCSE students, and are designed to provide a bite-sized revision session on some common curriculum topics.

Sessions will be 30 minutes each and topics covered will include: the use of tenses in German, ser and estar in Spanish, word order in Chinese and forming questions in French.

Each session will be presented by a member of the academic staff from the Department of Modern Languages. To find out more about studying with us, please visit our department page.

Ahead of the online sessions, check out the video from Marta Marquez-Fernandez, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Modern Languages at the University of Chester who gives us an insight into why you might choose to study a language.
