Intensive Courses!

Between 23rd June and 4th July, Year 9 Tomlinscote School students had the privilege of undertaking Chinese, Japanese, German and French Intensive courses. The Chinese and Japanese courses lasted two weeks, and the German and French courses lasted a week each. Below are photographs from the fortnight.
