#Linguastars online resources

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we decided to move our Year 12¬†Languages Residential online – meet #Linguastars…

We have put together a package of recorded workshops from the residential to give Year 12 students a taster of undergraduate language study and help them make those all important Higher Education decisions from the comfort of the sofa!

Including undergraduate level sessions in French, Spanish and German, beginners language tasters in Italian and Arabic as well as the chance to try out some joint honours subjects, this package will help to explore what it’s like to study languages at university. With a Student Ambassador Q&A, as well as talks about employability and the course options here at Leeds, you’ll also get a taster of student life!

Find the videos embedded below.
