Students had the opportunity to meet Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. Mr Ali, Urdu teacher at Levenshulme High School, also had the opportunity to present her his Urdu Reading and Writing book.
The trip to the Manchester Metropolitan University on Monday 2nd July was an eye opener about the opportunities that languages can offer. I took a selfie with Malala and she delivered an inspirational speech at the Mother Tongue and Other Tongue awards ceremony.
Languages have no barriers and they make you more mindful of all the different cultures. I love languages!Mahnoor – S06
