Language Perfect Northern Championships 2018

Bonjour, Ni Hao, Hola! Last week, BIS HCMC students took part in the Language Perfect Northern Championships which ran from the 6th to the 13th of November 2018.

  • MFL 6
  • MFL 5
  • MFL 4
  • MFL 3
  • MFL 2

This was an online competition in which students from more than 20 countries had been set to compete for personal and school glory.

From this celebration of language learning and achievement competition, we came in 12th overall globally out of 218 schools, and 4th global ranking amongst the Nord Anglia Education schools. 

Our students were able to recap vocabulary previously learnt in the classroom, but they also had the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn new vocabulary and grammar concepts. During the time of the competition, over 18 million questions have been answered by competitors worldwide. Some notable student performances came from Year 5 student Boeing Pham who has scored 5,072 points in Spanish and came 5th across our 3 campuses, thus achieving the Emerald Certificate and Cherry Huynh (Year 6), Lien Phuong Pham (Year 5), KunHo Jang (Year 5) who have scored more than 2,000 points each.  

We finished the competition week with some very positive feedback from our students:

“I think Education Perfect is good for improving our language skills.” Nathan Nguyen

“It’s is so useful. I love it” – Siwoo Kim

“So easy to learn Chinese with it, I love it” said Cherry Huynh

“I am good at French” indicated confidently by Anh Tuan Pham.

Besides this competition, our students were involved in a variety of cultural activities in MFL lessons. Year 6 pupils made ‘crepes’ before half-term, showing their French knowledge by introducing the crepe recipes in French but also demonstrating their cooking skills by successfully flipping the crepes.

The children had a wonderful time and some of our French learners even performed their own “show” of how to make crepes at home to their family.

The Spanish groups took part in Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations, making skeletons puppets, paper or cardboard masks. They learnt about the meaning of the celebration and the similarities and differences about this custom in countries around the world.

In Mandarin, we welcomed Ms Emilie, our new addition to the MFL department, allowing us to split some of the Mandarin groups, making it a more effective environment for learning.

The children so far have been fantastic, showing motivation and enthusiasm and we are looking forward for seeing them progress and thrive throughout the year.
