Senior Assembly - European Day of Languages

Senior Assembly - European Day of Languages

Flags seniorsIn our senior assembly this week, Gateway celebrated the European Day of Languages (26th September), which encourages people in Europe to appreciate the many languages spoken around the world. 6DL tutor group challenged its audience to ‘Guess the country’ by displaying flags from many of the countries currently participating in the Rugby World Cup. We then listened to audio clips of people speaking some of the main languages spoken in those countries and had to ‘Guess the language’. We discussed how flags, traditions and many other things, including languages, can represent a nation. Our flag knowledge was superb, although some of the language audio clips proved a bit harder! The assembly highlighted the importance and benefits of diversity whilst recognising that we are all one world. How many of the nations’ flags do you recognise? DL
