MFL Speaking Competition

Mrs Cassar and her team were delighted to host the south west heats of the MFL Speaking Competition again last week. As ever, the standard was impressively high, with thirty competitiors from local schools and colleges presenting in non-native, near-native and native categories in German, French, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin and Polish. A special well done to Luca for his joint first prize in KS3 Italian, to Eloise for winning first prize for her KS4 French presentation and to Ben who was a KS3 Mandarin-speaking runner-up. Some amazing singing in Italian from Ollie, Alfie and Lizzie has inspired the idea of a perfomance category in next year's competition. Well done to all the competitors whose commitment and enthusiasm is helping to keep alive the teaching and learning of MFL in schools.
