The Vocab Express League of Champions is back for 2016, due to run from Wednesday 28th September until Tuesday 4th October 2016 to coincide with the European Day of Languages.
The competition is a fantastic way to engage students in language learning by challenging them to compete against other schools across the UK and from around the world. Students earn points for completing vocabulary learning activities across a wide range of languages. The 2015 competition saw an amazing 35 million points scored by over 33,000 students from more than 300 schools, both in the UK but also as far afield as the UAE and Karachi, competing both as an individual and on behalf of their school to appear at the top of the leaderboard.
Students will this year have the opportunity to compete across a record 14 languages: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Urdu, Arabic, Hebrew, Latin and Ancient Greek. All of the action can be tracked on our live leaderboards throughout the week, and there are certificates and prizes on offer for the highest scoring schools and students.
This year, Vocab Express are making available 150 free places for the competition – for up to 150 students – and have extended their offer to SALT members.
