Three Landau Forte students attended the regional final of this year’s Modern Foreign Language Spelling Bee on 19 April at Stamford School . The competition, which is in its eighth year, is run by Routes into Languages, a government programme which aims to get more children and young people learning and enthusiastic about modern foreign languages (MFL) across the country.
The Foreign Language Spelling Bee is a national competition for students in Year 7 to practise and improve their vocabulary, spelling and memory skills in a foreign language. The College had three representatives in the regional final Isla, Jasmine, and Samir.
Samir was the winner of the German competition, Jasmine was 3rd in the Spanish and Isla 4th in German, and all will represent the College in the national final in Cambridge on 29 June. This continues the College’s consistent record of having at least one student in the national final every year that the competition has run. We are very proud of all three students’ achievements and wish all of them the best of luck in June.
