NB This activity is open to all schools in the UK
The Summer Holiday Language Immersion Challenge is aimed at students in years 7 to 13 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.
There are an optional 5 advanced challenges for those students in years 10 to 13, and if they complete all of these as well as the first 14 challenges, they are awarded a Platinum certificate.
The challenge booklet and certificates are attached and available for teachers to download.
