New and Improved!

Newcastle University's Linguacast Days have taken on a new dimension with the arrival of Routes into Languages.

The Newcastle based Routes team invite Year 10 and Year 12 pupils with their teachers to Newcastle University campus. Here they work with students from all over the world to improve their language skills and their confidence. We use simple computer technologies, such as Powerpoint, to enhance learning and to keep languages fun!

Activities normally include:

  • Taster session in a new language (Chinese, Portuguese, Turkish, or Dutch)
  • Campus tour
  • Q & A session with students
  • Info sessions on university life and study
  • Use of language labs
  • Storyboard writing and recording
