Everyone is a Translator – with Juliette Saumande

  • Workshop

Everyone a Translator!

Can you speak Gobbledigook? Can you read a story with no words? Can you translate from a language you don’t speak? And can you write a book that can be understood by everybody in the whole wide world?

You may not know this yet, but the answer is yes!

With writer and translator Juliette Saumande, explore code-breaking, wordless books and emojis, and discover your own super translating powers!

A series of 5 online workshops every Saturday, starting Saturday May 16th, running every Saturday until June 13th

A PDF for teachers and parents is available on request from
