Eye-opening … good to see how serious the school is about MFL. Very professional.
Inspiring panel of speakers, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Really inspirational. Need more women on the panel. Big thanks.
I thought putting it in the business context really worked – I work with a Pinsents lawyer from Glasgow, currently based in Paris.
A really useful evening. Very inspiring ! Made us consider evening classes.
Thank you for the invite and the time given by staff and guests. (My son’s) takehome was that ‘it gets you more money, so I want to do it.’ Hopefully he will come to appreciate the wider benefits of cultural awareness and an openness to alternative, non-parochial issues and ways of thinking. I imagine it will improve his English skills too as he thought Alzheimers had something to do with bones (arthritis) !!
Really informative. Good range of speakers covering different interests. Used adood variety of experiences to appeal to the students, which helped !
Excellent evening. I’m really inspired (as a parent) to learn a language. I wish other subjects would do this, too, + evening classes !
I agree that all students should continue with a 2nd language. It’s something I regret not pursuing in 3rd year & beyond.
Very interesting. Opened my eyes to think differently. I gained Higher German but can’t speak a word now – wish I had kept it up as I felt I wasted the hard work + 4 years it took me.
Excellent evening ! Great blend of academia + commerce. They should do this for all subjects !!
It was great to hear from the various speakers, very informative of the great opportunities available.
Very informative and inspiring. We do hope and will encourage our daughter to consider continuing with a language.
Different world today than when I went to school & listening to your speakers has emphasised that. Thank you, will take your messages home and encourage my children strongly to take MFLs.
Informative evening. Great to hear it how it is as well as putting it into context/personal perspective. Thank you.
Great speakers. Great variety. Learnt a lot myself. Nice to hear about personal stories linked to languages.
It was useful and informative. Thanks for organising this.
Very informative evening. Enjoyable listening to all the speakers’ different reasons. Excited to see where my son goes with his language journey.
Very informative – really interesting to see where languages can take you. Thank you.
Really great event by the school. Speakers were excellent. Made me want to do a language.
So motivating. This has totally changed my mindset.
Night classes for parents.
Good varied speakers. Inspiring talks about the benefits of languages. Interesting to listen to.
Excellent evening. Very interesting and informative and the little bit of comedy was nice.
Excellent course about languages for my son.
Very informative. Definitely lots of ‘food for thought.’ Now looking at the importance of languages from different perspectives ! Thanks J
Very well-presented and informative. Length of presentations was perfect. Very informative and inspirational. Thank you.
