Bishopshalt School - Language Assistant

Details of the Charity:

Our goal is to provide every student with the chance to learn a modern language, which is why we currently offer French and Spanish at the A-level. Our aim is to foster confident speakers of these languages by exposing students to the cultures of the countries where they are spoken through interactions with native speakers.

Our hope is that students will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the richness of these cultures, as well as the ability to communicate effectively in these important global languages.
