Students at Greenfield Community College and their extended dimension, Greenfield Arts have much to celebrate in relation to languages and learning about cultural diversity.

The recent European Language Day is a “celebration of the amazing number and variety of languages spoken across Europe. Schools and organisations mark the event every year to promote language learning and celebrate the linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe”.

Students at Greenfield Community College in the Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) department have been celebrating the day by taking part in activities such as language quizzes and exploring cultural diversity.  The department organise annual foreign excursions (at present on hold) and students study languages and culture of in depth throughout their time at Greenfield, having the opportunity to develop their own ideas and deliver presentations to their peers.
