TY / 1st Years-Peer teaching

TY students organised a screening of Le Petit Nicolas, then designed and taught French lessons based on the film to our 1st Year students, who said, “They made slide shows and made up games so we could learn new words easily. We really enjoyed doing it and we had great fun.”
