Edinburgh Napier's foreign languages celebrated in new magazine
Students from Edinburgh Napier University are celebrating the end of the academic year by launching a magazine written in the languages they’ve chosen to study.
4 April 2018
The first volume of Worldwide Napier features a range of topical, fun and thought-provoking articles written in French, German, Spanish and Italian, the foreign languages taught at the University.
Articles cover topics such ‘what is culture?’, ‘immigration and integration’ and ‘plastic waste and social media’. The magazine also features a brain-teasing ‘guess the language’ quiz for those who really want to put their linguistic abilities to the test.
The achievement is the result of a collaboration between several languages students and third year BDes (Hons) Graphic Design student, Adele Juraza, who put the magazine together. The extra-curricular project is aimed at creating a sense of community amongst students across years and languages, giving them a sense of pride and motivation by showcasing their work outside Edinburgh Napier’s walls.
The first issue is already available online and 100 print copies are due to arrive soon to be distributed for free in selected venues around Edinburgh, such as cafés.
Secondary school pupils across Scotland are also invited to contribute to the magazine’s cultural and linguistic celebrations.
