The University of East Anglia will be running a non-residential language summer school for students entering Year 12 or Year 13 in September 2016. The summer school will include provisions for French, Spanish and German and will run from Monday 22 August until Thursday 25 August.
This non-residential summer school on UEA campus is for students entering Year 12 or Year 13 next academic year and who will be studying French, Spanish or German AS or A-level in September 2016. The summer school will provide four days of intensive language learning to help prepare students for the progression to A-Level, and will run from 10am until 4pm except for Thursday 25 August, which will include a visit to a Spanish restaurant in the evening.
30 places are available on the summer school, 10 in each subject area. Each language will be taught by experienced university language tutors who are all native speakers of the languages offered.
Alongside language study, students will have the opportunity to engage with languages in a university style. This will involve working in seminar classes to focus on speaking and grammar skills in the morning sessions. In the afternoon students will look at language from a different perspective by using their language skills to:
Explore the University’s campus;
Learn a brand new language, such as Japanese;
Learn about new cultures through art at the Sainsbury Centre;
Create a documentary in another language in UEA’s TV studio.
The UEA Language Summer School is free to attend for successful applicants. All travel between the students’ home and UEA will be subsidised. All applicants must supply a written application and a letter of motivation in order to be considered for the summer school, this is in addition to a letter of support from their MFL teacher recommending them for the summer school.
