Foreign language success for Stanchester students
6:00pm Saturday 7th December 2013 in Somerset
STANCHESTER Academy students recently came a fantastic third nationally in an online language learning competition called the Vocab Express Championships.
Each year schools from across the country, and indeed worldwide, compete to learn foreign languages earning points as they go.
Stanchester's students worked furiously at home and at school to enhance their French, Spanish and German and were thrilled to learn that they finished the competition third in their league.
Language teacher Mr Brown said: "Vocab Express is one of a range of tools we provide for our students in Modern Languages and it enables them to learn, revise and compete with each other at home and at school.
"I'm really proud of the way that they have embraced this new way of learning and it's bound to have a great impact on their overall knowledge of languages."
