Challenge Eight

Fancy French, Sizzling Spanish, Lavish Latin and Marvellous Mandarin

Independent learning skills: research, memory, information processing

Learning a new language, or two, is something many of you are thoroughly looking forward to when you start at the Archer Academy. You will have the opportunity to learn French or Spanish as part of your curriculum from September. Additionally, you will be able to learn Latin, Italian and Mandarin outside of the school day if you would like to.

Your challenge this week will involve you thinking about the culture, geography and history of France, Spain and China – how much do you already know about these countries? There are also a couple of questions about the historic language of Latin – can you find out about why this is such a good subject for you to study and stretch your mind?

The final four questions are bit a more tricky – are you up to some translation? Just give it a go. This is a brilliant opportunity for you to start experiencing new foreign vocabulary and getting ready to take on some new and exciting learning in Year 7.

Good luck!   fORTUNA   bonne chance  buena suerte  好運
