MFL Spelling Bee

MFL dept. Friday 30 Mar 2012

Congratulations to Ekshant Kumar (7GTA), Muhaimin Khan (7DGI), Ruben Gonzales and Suk Min Hwang (7NBR) for taking part in the Modern Foreign Languages Spelling Bee regional competition in the heart of London earlier this week! Ekshant and Muhaimin were entered for French, Ruben and Suk Min for Spanish. They coped very well with the pressure and did their very best against other Year 7 students from sixteen other schools. Although they will not be going to the national final, they told me that they throroughly enjoyed the experience and that training for this event has helped them develop the study skills necessary to do well in languages.

Special congratulations to Ekshant who came 5th in French! Only the top four students in each language go to the national final.

The prizes were given in the early evening by a member of the European Commission which sponsors this event. He was assisted by representatives of the French Institute, Goethe Institute (for those who competed in German) and La Consejerìa de Educaciòn in London. He was very impressed by the level of the competition and the students' commitment and congratulated them all!

Well done everyone!

Madame Gillbanks
