Marcel Obst Visits RGS

On Friday 23rd January, the MFL department welcomed a visitor (a PhD student) from Leeds University by the name of Marcel Obst. A German-born man, who grew up in Spain, speaks fantastic English and knows a considerable amount about a range of other languages and cultures, Marcel certainly had much to share with our Year 8 and Year 9 students for whom he delivered an interactive presentation on the huge value of languages and language learning. Marcel was entertaining, insightful and inspiring, as he highlighted the extent to which languages have played an enormous role in his life and can play a significant role in anyone’s life. Our students were brilliant too, as they asked sensible and thought-provoking questions, which made the whole experience even more beneficial for everyone.
