The Junior Language Challenge is an annual competition for primary school age children across the UK. Its goal is to encourage under-elevens and help them feel confident in their ability to learn any language, not just one, and not just those traditionally covered in the classroom. The first language for 2014 is Italian!


"It felt amazing to win the JLC. I am really looking forward to going to Malawi and seeing how JLC has helped children's education there."
Ella Whittingham, JLC Champion 2013
"The JLC set me on the path to learning languages."
Lucy Smith, the first ever JLC Champion
"The competition inspired me to learn languages; I am looking to apply to university to do law and Spanish or interpreting and translating. The JLC was an amazing experience and I was proud to be part of it."
Marliese Perks, JLC Contestant 2003
