        Hey 007 geeck!

        I can speak two languages- Spanish and Maths! Maths is a brilliant language that I didn’t love at school, but learnt to love as the years went by. It lets you explain so much cool physics. With maths, you can work out all of the angles of the different colours of the rainbow, figure out how fast you need to fire a rocket to get it to escape our atmosphere, understand the orbits of the planets and work out how to get a plane to fly. It’s one of the most amazing and useful languages in the world, and one that people from every country speak (!).

        I wish I could! I can speak bits of french and just about get by. When I was at school I could understand what a lot of french people were saying, but not necessarily speak french. Now I can’t even do that! Speaking a language is a really fantastic skill and if you ever learn it try and keep it fresh in your mind. You never know when it’ll come in useful!
