English Day at School

Students at the school in Dyrøy experienced an exciting training day in English along with twelve students and four teachers from the University of Southampton. View the great report from Salangen News. This is good learning – both ways!

Today’s program on Elvetun school consisted of two workshops:

What factors influence these judgements (e.g. formal education, peers, parents)? Does it depend on the type of information that they are seeking?
