There were four competitions for Languages Week 2017, two of which will be formally run by the MLTAWA in 2018 – Let Me Tell You a Story, Let Me Tell You in My Language and Side by Side. As the other two competitions are not being formally run this year, why not use them as a basis for an activity in your school or community?

Let Me Tell You a Story, Let Me Tell You in My Language

Produce a bilingual text film or e-Book. Open to WA school aged students who are bilingual or have a background in a language other than English. Community language teachers, Aboriginal language teachers and EALD/ESL teachers can encourage their students to take part in this competition or incorporate into their teaching/learning programs in 2018.

Side by Side

Conduct a conversation in the target language with a classmate and record it on video. Open to second language learners from P-12 in WA mainstream school programs. Language teachers can incorporate this task into their teaching/learning programs and make one school submission per age/language category.

Languages in our Landscape

Submit photographs from your landscape/environment which represent the diversity of living languages in our community. Open to all WA school-aged students.

Languages as a Life Changer

Provide email or online written responses to interview questions about how language learning has changed your life. Open to any WA resident of any age group.
