We are inviting secondary students across the South West to take part in our extremely popular MFL Speaking Competition! Three sub-regional finals will be held in March in various locations:
The Royal High School, Bath Date: Tuesday 1st March
Nova Hreod Academy, Swindon Date: Monday 7th March
This competition is open to students of secondary age from any SW school and will provide an opportunity for students to use their foreign language out of the classroom. The competition will run in two categories: Non-native speakers and Near-native speakers in KS3-5 but if any categories do not attract sufficient numbers we reserve the right to withdraw them.
Students may present at any level in French, German or Spanish. We also accept entries in other languages but we reserve the right to withdraw them if we are unable to find judges.
Please download the poster for further information. The closing date for entries is 4pm on Friday 5th February 2016.
Presentations from the last year's Regional Final in Bath can be viewed on our YouTube channel
