Bryn Tawe pupils taste University life

On Wednesday, 16 May 2012, pupils from Ysgol Gyfun Bryn Tawe, Swansea will get to experience student life for a few hours at Swansea University.

Forty Year 9 pupils from Ysgol Gyfun Bryn Tawe have been invited to participate in a ‘‘Taste of languages through the medium of Welsh”, day by Swansea University’s Department of Languages, Translation and Media and the South West Wales Reaching Wider Partnership. 

The day has been sponsored by Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, Swansea University and the South West Wales Reaching Wider Partnership which aims to widen access into higher education across south west Wales.

The aim of the day will be to promote modern foreign language opportunities through the medium of Welsh. The pupils will receive a tour of Swansea University campus as well as a talk about university life.

They will also participate in various workshops such as ‘German for All’, ‘Holiday Spanish’ and a ‘Surviving French Translation’ session.

Dr Geraldine Lublin from Swansea University’s Department of Languages, Translation and Media said: ‘‘It is great to see that so many pupils from Ysgol Gyfun Bryn Tawe are interested in attending our taster day. I sincerely hope that they will enjoy each session and learn that there are great benefits to studying foreign languages through the medium of Welsh at Swansea University.’’
