Literacy quote of the week: German department

This week’s literacy quote comes from the German Department. They have chosen a famous proverb as our penultimate literacy quote.



In English the proverb means ‘practice makes perfect’ and it is very apt in the context of student learning, where students continuous practice can really enhance their personal learning.


The origins of the proverb can be traced back to the 16th century, when its form was ‘Use makes perfect


The Latin version of the proverb ‘Uses promptos facit.’
