Year 7 pupils will show off their skills at national final at Anglia Ruskin UniversityThe crème de la crème of young language students will descend on Anglia Ruskin University on Friday, 1 July for the national final of a Spelling Bee competition.
“We’re very excited to be able to give these talented youngsters a chance to show their flair for languages here at Anglia Ruskin University.
“Evidence suggests the benefits of learning languages stretch far beyond the practicalities of being a useful tool when living, working or travelling abroad and it is very encouraging that we have had so many entries to this year’s competition.
“We look forward to welcoming all the children on 1 July and hope the academic ambience of Cambridge can give them all that extra ‘je ne sais quoi’.”
