Into the Arab World

Introducing students to the RAF’s linguists and their work.

Tuesday 30th January 2018 @ RAF Museum, Cosford, Shropshire.

A team of six Year 9 pupils will be representing the school at a unique event co-hosted by the RAF and British Language Champions (BLC). 

‘Into the Arab World’ is aimed at students with particular interest in developing their employability skills and experiencing Arabic.

The day will involve a series of tasks, putting to use the Arabic that has been learnt. 

This will be an opportunity for students to work with experienced RAF officers as well as international business people familiar with Arabic and the Arab countries. They will also expand their knowledge of how languages can improve their career opportunities.
