A Top Secret Mission for our Year 10 Linguists

Last Thursday six intrepid linguists from Year 10 ventured to Cardiff University to take part in a GCHQ competition.

The GCHQ is part of the UK National Security Services so we got to play spooks for the day! We had lots of fun with a taster session in a new language (Korean, Arabic or Mandarin) and a session on decoding. An intense series of tasks followed where we had to decipher encrypted messages and listen to foreign conversations in order to infiltrate a drug smuggling ring and arrest the criminals!

After a jam-packed day we had to present our findings in French to a judging panel and we were delighted to be runners-up in the end!

This day totally opened our eyes to the potential careers open to you when you study a foreign language.

It was awesome!
