FIFA Women’s World Cup : Plenty of Teams for Modern Linguists to Support

Friday 7th June 2019

Learning  a  Modern  Language  has  many  advantages.

One  of  them  is  that  you  can always  support  the  team  whose  language  you’re  learning  if  the  Scottish  team  doesn’t  make  it  to  the  final  of  the  FIFA  Women’s  World  Cup  in  France.

New  S3  pupils  who  have  continued  learning  French  or  are  just  starting  German or  Mandarin  will  no  doubt  be  cheering  on their  ‘second  team,’  too !

Our  double-linguists  –  those  taking  French and Mandarin  or  French and German  –  will  have  even more  options   !!

‘Bonne  chance’  to  Scotland,  but  the  French  will  be  hard  to  beat  at  home  …  and  who  would  bet  against  the  Germans ?

Allez  les  filles –  C’mon, the  girls !

Mr  Poots

Principal  Teacher  Modern  Languages
