This is the week we’ve all been waiting for! The Language Perfect World Championships have started. The biggest language learning competition there has ever been in history! Do you and your pupils want to be part of history? Oh yeah!
Countries competing against countries, schools competing against schools, pupils competing against pupils all with the same aim: to appear as high as possible on the championship scoreboard. 2.5 million questions have already been answered in the first day of the competition. With 6 days to go who knows what the final total will be?
This now is our challenge to compete with the rest of the world. We mustn’t slip behind as we’ll never catch up. Don’t forget in last year’s European Language Olympics, the UK topped the scoreboard, but now we are against the world people! Time to step up!
I am personally in charge of coordinating the UK attempt on the crown! (No pressure there then) and with your participation, I’m sure we can do a sterling job!
If you haven’t done so already, you can use the code (JDALE) when registering to receive 50 places for FREE and if you are a member of the Association of Language Learning, an official partner of Language Perfect, you can additionally use the code (ALL) for an extra 50 FREE places. Anyone can use my code not just schools from the UK so what have you got to lose?
To see just how much learners are loving the competition to date, check out the Language Perfect Facebook page which is awash with positivity!
Check out too the news page on the main site where CEO Craig Smith, myself and other members of the Language Perfect World Championships committee will be posting regular updates throughout the week.
To celebrate your school's achievements further, you can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and attach images such as your position on the scoreboard, audio or video clips and some accompanying text about how you are finding the competition. Contributions will appear on this Posterous blog embedded automatically and accessible to all.
The country which accumulates the most points wins the Trevor and Rose Trophy, named after Craig's Mum and Dad!
What a great way to enthuse your students at the start of the school year.
