A graphic image to represent Celebrate Speaking

This event is now closed. Thank you to everyone who joined our festival - the pupils and students, their teachers and parents and the expert judges. Our celebration event was held on 4 May 2023 and featured nine outstanding presentations representing nine languages; these were the submissions that our judges picked as the best of the best! Which languages do you know and which ones would you like to learn?

Check out our video of the event via the link below. 

How do you join in?

Practise and celebrate a language you are learning, or use in your community, and take part in a virtual festival of speaking!

Prepare a short poem, presentation, sketch or dialogue in the target language. This can be a solo or joint performance but should be no longer than 90 seconds in total. 

Record yourself delivering the performance. Participants under the age of 16 should use PowerPoint slides, Bitmoji, images or video, rather than showing their faces. 

Upload your performance to Twitter or Facebook with the hashtags #CelebrateSpeaking and the language chosen (e.g. #Polish).

Remember to use the hashtag or we won’t be able to find your performance!

The deadline for posting your entries is 28 February 2023.
