Help is at hand for Mandarin, Punjabi and Thai speakers at The Emmbrook School from newly-qualified young interpreters.
In a borough first, nine bilingual pupils at the Emmbrook Road school have qualified in a Hampshire County Council scheme that will help new arrivals settle in and help arrange international visits from prospective parents and pupils.
Jana Crichlow, Ioana Gurau, Knight Anumat, Daljinder Hansra, Anna Xue, Benjamin Elison, Haiyang Huang, Nuyam Limbu and Sharvaree Puranik are all excited to have taken on the roles.
The talented teenagers are skilled in a range of languages from across the continents, including Romanian, Icelandic, Hindi and Nepali.
