Literacy Week – Language learning, speed dating style!

On Wednesday afternoon, as part of literacy week, eighteen Prem students celebrated their mother tongue by teaching it to students in Grades 9 and 10.

Thirteen different languages were represented and the “teachers” did a wonderful job of giving their curious peers a taste of other languages.    

The activity, which took place in the downstairs library area, is a variation on the popular practice of speed dating. The students “speed date” with the “teachers” to learn a few conversational phrases in languages as varied as Hungarian and Dzongkha.

For a short time, the Prem library became a truly plurilingual space and the multicultural nature of our student body was manifest, reflecting true global mindedness.
