Do you think you could write a song or rap in a foreign language? Do you have the IT skills to make a video to accompany your song? If so… this competition is for you.

The Routes into Languages South West is inviting you to submit a short video, animated if you prefer, to accompany a song or rap, which you have composed in a foreign language. It has to be an original song or can be loosely based on an existing tune. The competition is open to students between the ages of 11-18 in full time education in all regions across the UK.  

We will videostream your video on the Routes into Languages South West YouTube channel.
