Our friendly team of Modern and Medieval Language tutors at St Edmund Hall invite A-Level students to join us for a series of 4 interactive workshops (exact dates to be confirmed) exploring the miraculous nature of words and the people, periods and places opened up to us by the study of other languages, literature and cultures.

Content covered will range from medieval Spanish poetry to a 19th century Russian classic novel, and from early-modern French short stories to political pamphlets written and distributed clandestinely in Nazi Germany.

You will develop critical reading skills while broadening your knowledge and understanding of other cultures and time periods. You will practise your translation skills into English from familiar and new languages. You will be encouraged to communicate your ideas in a supportive environment and introduced to new avenues for future reading and research.
