Pont sur la Manche (Bridge across the Channel)

This project went beyond the traditional language exchange. It covered many aspects of the curriculum so it involved not just the languages team but staff and indeed students from a range of disciplines. The programme included cross-Channel music and drama projects and performances, a visit to the battlefields of the Somme, business trips to Dieppe, marketing focus groups, and the annual sports camp moving to France with great success and more students than ever wishing to participate. For some these visits constitute their first experience of another country. Students have been amazed to discover that other teachers have language skills, for example, a history teacher being able to converse in French on a history trip to the Bayeaux Tapestry.

  • enhancement of quality of language teaching
  • focus on evaluation of performance of language teaching and learning
