EP International Languages Championship 2023
The International Languages Championship is an exciting 3-day event open to all foreign language students based in the Northern Hemisphere.
This competition is a fun and engaging opportunity for students to engage, revise, and learn language content on the Education Perfect platform.
When is the event?
The event will be open from Tuesday 7 November (12 pm SGT) until Thursday 9 November (12 pm SGT) 2023.
Students can participate as much or as little as they like during this time.
Who can take part?
This competition is open to all schools globally that are currently subscribing to Education Perfect, excluding Australia and New Zealand.
Eligible schools will be invited to participate via email. If you did not receive this email but would like to take part, please feel welcome to contact us.
The competition is suitable for Year 2/Grade 1 students and above, with content available for beginner to advanced levels for a wide range of foreign languages including French, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, German, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese and EAL/ESOL.
How do students compete?
Students will need an account to participate and can be set up by following our guide.
- Students will log in to EP, and complete any of our EP Languages activities for Grammar, Speaking, Listening, Reading & Writing, as well as our extensive bank of vocabulary quizzes.
- Students earn points for correct answers regardless of lesson difficulty or chosen language. The more questions they complete, the more points they earn!
- Students can independently access and complete language content during the event, but will also earn points for any teacher-assigned Languages tasks. This way, you can choose whether to direct students to particular activities or let them choose the content they wish to complete for the competition.
How much time will it require?
We know that teaching schedules are jam-packed, which is why we've designed this competition to be as flexible as possible. You do not need to allocate class time to take part, and there is no minimum amount of time required.
There is also no need for any prior teaching or specific preparation required for the event.
What content is included?
Students will be able to compete by completing any content from the languages subject folders and the EAL subject folders. Please note only official EP content completed will count towards the scoreboard.
How can I support my students?
How could I run this event with my students?
- Allocate one or more of your languages lessons to the event and guide students towards specific content (ie revision materials from recent topics);
- Assign the event as a fun homework activity for your students
- Run the Festival as an extra-curricular event, and offer time for students to participate during lunchtime and/or after school.
Some teachers like to offer additional in-school rewards, such as House Points or Merits, to encourage friendly competition and boost student participation.
How can I promote the event?
