CNS Students win prize at MFL Speaking Competition

Last week CNS participated in the prestigious Wymondham College MFL Speaking Competition alongside several schools from Norfolk and Suffolk.

I was extremely impressed with our students' confidence to perform in front of so many schools in German, Spanish and French! Our students were also very creative, and their performances included sketches in German, singing in French or talking about their holidays in Spanish. I was especially proud to see how much they had practiced and rehearsed in order to appear and sound more natural.

It was not a surprise that our Germanists who performed a sketch advertising a bike won a prize in their category for our school; it was funny and so well presented.

Finally, I want to say a huge well done to all the participants, not only for taking part and getting out of their comfort zone, but also for making me proud with their excellent manners and behaviour. I am very much looking forward to next year's competition!
