I hope you enjoy the summer holidays!
Don’t forget you can find useful websites in the document on the right, if you want to keep practising your French and Spanish over summer. If you haven’t already, I would recommend using DuoLingo for a fun way to learn a new language – I am trying to learn some Italian at the moment!
