Welcome to Foreign Language Assistants

28th September 2022
As we celebrate European Languages Week here in school, it couldn’t be a better time to welcome our eagerly anticipated incoming Spanish, German and French native speakers and Foreign Language Assistants.

Hola to Maria from the south of Spain who joins us from a sunny city next to the beach called Huelva.  Maria is 22 years old and has just finished her double degree in Primary Education and English language and literature. In her spare time Maria enjoys weightlifting at the gym and also works as a model for local designers.

Maria will work with us as a Spanish language teaching assistant.

Hallo to Viktoria who joins us from Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol, Austria – a place known for its magnificent mountains and endless possibilities to do sports.  Viktoria loves to go hiking, climbing and swimming.  She is also very fond of cooking and baking. One of her favourite dishes is spinach dumplings, which is a typically Austrian dish made of bread cubes and spinach.

Viktoria will work with us as a German language teaching assistant.

Bonjour to Manon who joins us from the city of Marseille in the South of France.  Manon’s main passion is reading, especially fantasy novels, horror stories or classic literature. Manon  adores every kind of book and, inspired by her reading,  likes writing as well.  She also loves listening to music, and attending live concerts of her favourite artists. During her spare time,  Manon enjoys hiking, discovering new cities and new landscapes.  She has also learned to play the ukulele as a hobby!

Manon will work with us as a French language teaching assistant.

A warm Wakefield Girls’ welcome –  we are looking forward to working with you, learning as much as we can about your cultures and languages and enjoying the months we are going to spend together.
