David Crystal Returns
For the second year running, world-renowned linguist David Crystal visited Calday Grange Grammar School to talk to students about the fascinating world of the English Language.
The event is growing in prestige from one year to the next, and students from six schools across Wirral – Birkenhead Sixth Form College, Wirral Grammar School for Boys, Wirral Grammar School for Girls, West Kirby Grammar School for Boys, Neston High School and Hilbre High School – joined students from Calday to listen to Crystal’s talks.
We were reminded of Crystal’s witty and engaging delivery style which, though very thorough, was easily digestible for everyone in attendance, and Crystal’s interactivity made students even more aware of the issues surrounding language today.
Professor Crystal presented his material with an amazing spontaneity and an anecdotal tinge, and always managed to exemplify his points by providing examples relatable for his audience.
Students will certainly benefit from his material, and we look forward to the third event next year!
