TEENAGERS have been giving foreign language lessons to primary school pupils.

A group from The Henry Cort Community College in Fareham visited two primary schools to deliver the lessons.

The students, aged 13 and 14, taught the children how to speak phrases and to count to 10 in Turkish, Chinese, Afrikaan, Italian and German.

Pupil Beth Donovan, 14, said: ‘It’s been great to learn new languages and to teach younger people about new cultures.’

Lessons were held at Titchfield Primary School and Orchard Lee Junior School, Fareham.

Pupil Keira Wellesley Davies, 13, said: ‘It’s been great to teach younger students what we know.’

Emma Allen-Jones, 14, said: ‘We’ve been learning Afrikaan for two weeks.

‘The children have picked it up quickly.’

Teacher Steve Causley said the language workshops were engaging.

He added: ‘The children have enjoyed it and now know lots of new words.’
