with the University of York & Routes into Languages Olympics quiz
 

After El Mundo hispano and the Tour de France virtuel, this year we are returning with our final online quiz, open to pupils of French, Spanish and German and celebrating the idea of Language champions through an Olympics theme. 

Over the course of 4 weeks, there will be questions to answer in English and the target language, activities to help pupils reflect on the process of learning and producing language as well as creative tasks which will call on pupils to use the language they are studying (French, German and/or Spanish). 

The quiz, which will be hosted on a blog, will begin on Monday the 16th of May at 8 a.m. and end on Friday the 16th of June at 5 p.m (with a break for midterm). Each school may enter one team of up to 6 representatives from years 7 to 10.

To celebrate the end of the quiz, we will host a day of  language activities and a prize-giving ceremony in late June. To see pictures of previous winners and prize-giving ceremonies click here and here.
