Congratulations to everyone who's taken part in the Junior Language Challenge this year, especially to our fabulous finalists, who are now busy learning Arabic. The grand final will be taking place on Friday October 16th at Language Show Live in London.
"This once in a life-time experience really interested me in learning new languages and I would describe it as one of the best learning opportunities I have ever had. What made it even more special was that I had never won such a big trophy in my life!"
All entrance fees from the JLC are donated to onebillion, a non-profit company set up to reach children in developing countries, where lack of resources makes a good education hard to obtain. In Malawi, they have already established two oneclass learning centres, providing their apps in the local language, on tablets powered by solar power.
To find out more about onebillion and the apps they make for individuals and schools here in the UK, please visit their website.
