Students Meet David Crystal at English Language Conference
Published on 01/03/19
On Tuesday 26 February, sixth form students attended an English Language conference organised by The English and Media Centre. Speakers at the conference were experts in the field of linguistics and included a senior examiner and moderator for AQA English Language A Level. The theme of the conference was identity and how we use language to ‘perform’ different identities. The highlight of the conference was the key note speaker David Crystal, who is somewhat of a celebrity in the world of linguistics. He posed for a photo with the students and signed some autographs, which made their day! The conference was interesting and inspiring and the content will prove to be useful for students in the future.
