At the start of the Lent Term, a number of Sixth Form linguists at Abingdon attended the joint MFL Society Dinner, this year hosted by St Helen and St Katharine. Pupils listened to engaging talks from alumni from both schools who have held a number of roles over the course of their careers, including as ambassador to Lithuania, roles in the Cabinet and Foreign Office and a global think tank. Both speakers spoke about how languages have played such an integral part in their professional and personal lives since leaving school. Pupils were then treated to a delicious three course meal and a language-themed quiz. Spirits were high and it was great to be able to meet together for the first time in two years.
