Delta speaks your language!

Did you know that 12 different foreign languages are spoken by our Y11 students?

The list is most impressive and wide ranging! Arabic, Farsi, French, Greek, Italian, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Urdu!

66 students are aiming to gain an extra GCSE in their home language. Even though the exams have been cancelled, this group of talented teenagers has been given the opportunity to speak their home language with an assessor.

Students can be awarded a “PASS, MERIT or DISTINCTION” for their speaking and we expect many of these students to achieve the highest grade!

Awarding these grades has not be possible without the help of the assessors. This year we have been supported by a wide variety of Delta staff who have kindly given their time to help this unique group of students.

Doncaster’s Virtual School Language Support service has supplied us with the Farsi and Turkish assessors and Mandarin is being assessed by a contact at the prestigious multinational organisation, PricewaterhouseCoopers. As the inspiring Nelson Mandela once said…

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”.
