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 is available to download below.

Editable versions of each of the certificates are also attached below for teachers to produce and print out for their students.
