What languages and content are included?

All languages available on EP are included in this event. This includes EP-made and teacher-made content.

The content of this event is targeted at students learning foreign languages, rather than native speakers.

How does the competition work?

Once students have an account, they'll need to log in (from any device) to access and complete competition content. See our full participation guide here.

  • The competition is suitable for all ages and all levels of language learners. We have had students as young as Grade 2/Year 3 enjoy the event, right up to Grade 12/Year 13 students! 
  • Students can access all of our EP Languages activities for Speaking, Listening, Reading & Writing, as well as our extensive bank of vocabulary quizzes. 
  • Students will get points for questions answered correctly, regardless of question difficulty or chosen language. 
  • Students can independently access and complete language learning during the event, but will also earn points for any teacher-assigned Languages tasks. Teachers can choose whether to direct students to particular activities or let them choose the content they wish to complete for the competition.

Competition rules

At Education Perfect, we take competition integrity very seriously.

You can find a full breakdown of our event rules in this article: EP 2024 Global Language Championship Rules. We encourage all students and teachers to read these rules before competing in any event. 

Students will have all of their EP points removed if found to not be competing fairly in the event.

We will notify the teacher when we confirm this behaviour, however, if we do not hear back within 24 hours, we will remove the student’s points. This cannot be undone. 

Prizes and certificates

Student certificates will be available for download from the event scoreboard once the event has concluded and results are finalised.

Certificates outlining overall school achievements are no longer available. Teachers can find school results and data on the competition tile in the Competitions tab.
