David Crystal Lectures
Staff and students were thrilled to meet and hear the world renowned linguist David Crystal deliver three fantastic lectures about the English Language at Calday Grange Grammar School on Monday 18th November.
Students in Year 12 and Year 13 heard the exceptional linguist deliver lectures titled What's Happening in English Today, Accents: Past, Present and Future, and The Story of English in 100 Words. In each lecture, Mr Crystal entertained and informed students about a breadth of topics that will be incredibly useful for their examinations and possible topic areas for their Language Investigation NEA that is worth 10% of the final A Level grade.
At the end of the event, many students took the opportunity to have photos with Mr Crystal and bought some books which they then had signed by him.
