Sophia wins UK German Olympics Competition

We are delighted to announce that Year 11 pupil Sophia has won the Goethe Institute's UK German Olympics Competition.

To claim the top prize, Sophia was asked to write a paragraph of 100 words on the question: 'Was gefällt dir an den deutschsprachigen Ländern am besten?', and record a video or audio response to the question: 'Was ist typisch deutsch?'

The German Olympics, held every two years, is the largest German language competition in the world and sees young people come together to showcase their skills in German language and culture. Sophia will go on to compete against 100 other top linguists from around the world at the International Final held in Dresden, Germany in July.
