Term Topic #12

Week beginning 19 March 2018 (French Language Day 20.03.2018)

French was the first foreign language that I learnt back in primary school, and good thing too as it comes in very handy on holiday.
29 countries have it as their official spoken language. And it’s estimated that over 220 million people speak French worldwide. Vive les francophones!

Term Topic #11

Week beginning 12 March 2018 (British Science Week 09-18.03.2018)

Who says you can’t be a linguist and a scientist? In fact, it’s essential for me as one of my specialisms for translation is Life Sciences.
This week we’re celebrating science, technology, engineering and maths as part of British Science Week, featuring entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
Vist their website to find out what’s on near you, download an activity pack, or be an athlete and a scientist and do the virtual 10k Run to the Deep.

Term Topic #10

Week beginning 5 March 2018 (International Women's Day 08.03.2018)

My first experience of International Women’s Day was back in 2002 when I lived in Moscow. I was given flowers by random men on the street and around campus. Nowadays, it’s more common to celebrate this day in the UK too. 

Our term topic this week focuses on words needed to stand up for gender equality. If you are one of billions who believe that everyone is born free and equal, then one way you can take action against gender bias, discrimination and violence is through HeForShe. I am # 1837395.
