The Summer Holiday Language Immersion Challenge is open to Year 9, 10 and 11 students who will be taking their GCSEs next year and is designed to keep them practising their target language during the long summer break.

Students each receive a booklet containing 14 activities for them to complete, ranging from sending an email, watching a film or reading a teenagers blog in the target language to name just a few.

Participants will be awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze certificates after the summer holidays, depending on how many of the challenges they have completed.

Routes will award a small prize to all of those year 9, 10 and 11 students who complete 12 or more challenges.

The challenge booklet is available to download below.
