Many congratulations to Sophia in year 12, for her extraordinary performance in this year's international German Olympiad, which took place virtually this year. This feat is all the more impressive given that Sophia joined CLSG in year 9, having never studied German before.
She recalls, "the competition itself consisted of two tasks, one individual and one teamwork, and the 150 participants from around the world were divided into categories for judging. My team (consisting of me, a girl from Italy, a girl from the Czech Republic and a boy from Mexico) won the award for best international team out of 40 teams across all three language-level categories. The prize is an iPad each. Since the competition, I have been in contact with the other participants from not only my competition team but other categories as well, and we text each other now and again in German."
