Enrichment Day MFL Year 10 Immersion

On Enrichment Day, MFL students from Year 10 did a language immersion day. We started off with French and Spanish café role plays which were fun as we practised ordering food and drink in French and Spanish, taking it in turns to be the waiter and the customer. We then did it for real and there was lots of delicious food such as pains aux chocolat, croissants, pains aux raisins and also orange juice (zumo de naranja / jus d’orange).

We then did an exciting treasure hunt around the school which involved scanning QR codes to get the name of the place in French/Spanish that we had just visited eg: la biblioteca / la bibliothèque (library) and we also had to collect clues that described the place that we were going to next. To win you had to have all the French and Spanish places in the school written down accurately. When ours was marked, we got a few spellings wrong so we quickly ran back, scanned the codes again and corrected our spellings. We came second and won lollipops!

We then completed a sheet on which we had to fill in the verbs in the gaps and check that the place names matched up with the locations.

We finished the day off with a film and activities. The French students watched Les Choristes while we watched Voces Inocentes a film in Spanish about the civil war in El Salvador. This was a really sad film, I learnt that 75,000 people died and children were forced to go into the army.

I really enjoyed the Spanish Enrichment Day!

Muchas Gracias / Merci!
