Spanish linguists from Stamford Endowed Schools are Business Language Champions after event at Oundle School
Stamford Endowed Schools’ Spanish linguists return as Business Language Champions having competed in the Business Language Champions ‘marketing in the making’ challenge recently held at Oundle School.
The teams from Stamford, including a French and German team, were tasked with producing a short video advertising campaign in two hours by the Business Language Champions – an organisation, which bring schools and businesses together to promote foreign languages and cultural understanding.
As part of the tasks, Stamford teams had to complete a planning sheet and a presentation about their film, the challenges they faced and explain what they learned from the experience. The Stamford Spanish team of Year 10 pupils; Aaron, Thomas, Eve, Kitty, Annabel and Elizabeth, impressed the panel of judges with their Uncle Ben’s rice and sauces campaign and gained top scores in the language, presentation and film sections leading to an overall competition win.
Commenting on Stamford’s Spanish teams’ success, the judging panel said: ‘They displayed great pronunciation and brilliant detail in their presentation. The video was funny with a good sustainability message.”
