LIV Language Tasters:
On Saturday 25th January the LIV experienced their Languages Taster Day. They enjoyed trying out Chinese, German, Italian and Spanish and then were very lucky to attend a lecture given by Lydia Green a newsgathering and planning broadcast journalist who works for BBC Arabic News. Lydia studied Arabic and Spanish at Cambridge University and had lots of interesting stories to tell. She delighted the girls with stories about her travels in Buenos Aires and Lebanon. She highlighted the importance of language not just for jobs but as a way to connect with people all around the world. The girls were fascinated and had lots of their own interesting questions to ask at the end.
