From 17th - 24th March, our Key Stage 2 students took part in an online language competition organised especially for us by Language Perfect, a web-based company dedicated to the learning of languages.
The children got familiar with the website and started practicing the week before, answering thousands of questions in French, Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysia. Then on Monday 17th March, the competition began…The MFL team and I could not believe how motivated and determined our students were. Everyone competed fiercely for eight days and an unbelievable total of 403,888 translations were made online, or the equivalent of 2500 hours of learning.
Overall, 6I came in third position with 13,285 points. 5M came second with 16,269 points and 6T came first with 17,178 points. As far as individual students are concerned, Roshan from 5M came third with 4,277 points and Jake from 6I came second with 4,312 points. A big “well done” to Sam in 6T who came first with 5,025 points. Sam is also the student who scored the most points in French, however we also need to congratulate Ruili from 5S who scored the most points in Mandarin, and Rosalina from 5H who scored the most points in Bahasa Malaysia.
Well done to all our Key Stage 2 students for taking part in the competition and bring on the Language Perfect World Championships in May!
