Dulwich Linguistic takes pupils on a journey beyond languages and cultures

The week saw the whole school from Reception through to Year 13 crossing frontiers into the languages and cultures of countries beyond the English-speaking world. The week challenged boys’ linguistic limits, their perceptions of how they see themselves in a rapidly shrinking world and heightened their appreciation of communication in all its forms.

The week transformed all parts of the College into a veritable melting pot of events and activities crossing the imaginary divides between languages, science, music, mathematics, academia, business and sport. Every day engaged boys in a cornucopia of opportunity. During one day for example, boys could make their protest through the creative medium of screen-printing, be transported to Renaissance Italy, learn about the phonetics of ventriloquism or take part in a multi-lingual treasure hunt!

Special guests and visiting speakers included Huw Edwards, who led seminars and a career-focussed Question Time. There was a real sense of linguistic purpose about the College throughout the week, with boys rushing from one activity to another and challenging, celebrating and communicating on many different levels.
