Dulwich Linguistic takes pupils on a journey beyond languages and cultures

dulwich-linguistic-nov-2016-front-coverThis Michaelmas term, Dulwich College embarked on its latest free learning enterprise, “Dulwich Linguistic”. The week saw the whole school from Reception through to Year 13 crossing frontiers into the languages and cultures of countries beyond the English-speaking world. The week challenged boys’ linguistic limits, their perceptions of how they see themselves in a rapidly shrinking world and heightened their appreciation of communication in all its forms.

The week transformed all parts of the College into a veritable melting pot of events and activities crossing the imaginary divides between languages, science, music, mathematics, academia, business and sport. Every day engaged boys in a cornucopia of opportunity. During one day for example, boys could make their protest through the creative medium of screen-printing, be transported to Renaissance Italy, learn about the phonetics of ventriloquism or take part in a multi-lingual treasure hunt!

Special guests and visiting speakers included Huw Edwards, who led seminars and a career-focussed Question Time. There was a real sense of linguistic purpose about the College throughout the week, with boys rushing from one activity to another and challenging, celebrating and communicating on many different levels.
