Lizze Fane (DH 2004) has scooped the prestigious Threlford Memorial Cup at the Chartered Institute of Linguists. The Cup is awarded to an individual or organisation for "Fostering the Study of Languages".
First presented in 1935 by Sir Lacon Threlford, Founder of the Institute of Linguists, the Cup was described as “the world's greatest trophy for fostering the study of languages” and “of marvellous beauty”.
After leaving Downe House, Lizzie studied Italian and History of Art at The University of Edinburgh and launched her online company thirdyearabroad.com in 2010.
We could not be more proud of Lizzie's achievement. What a week for Languages at Downe House!
