Are you fanatic about French? Mad about Mandarin? Or maybe you love Latin?
Whatever your preferred language – even if you don’t know what that is yet – put aside some time this month to come and visit us at the Language Show Live at Olympia, London from 18-20 October.
Whether you are a language learner, student, teacher, translator, linguist or language professional, the show is designed to provide something for everyone. You can experience different cultures, attend on-site language taster lessons and meet exhibitors with the latest products and resources for language learning to help make it that little bit easier and fun!
The Vocab Express team will be there for all three days of the show on stand 539. Pop along and say hi and we can show you in person the developments that we are really excited about in the new version of Vocab Express we launched last month. This introduces upgraded language learning with new features and modes, along with a new mobile app for students. Want to know more now about this? Check out our post here.
We will also be on hand to tell you more about the brilliant Foreign Language Spelling Bee kicking off this month. This annual competition is designed to challenge Year 7 students nationally in each of the Routes into Languages’ regions to practise and improve their vocabulary, spelling and memory skills in a foreign language (French, German or Spanish).
We’ve just been announced as a new sponsor for this year, meaning that students taking part can now have free access to Vocab Express for the duration of the Spelling Bee to help them brush up and learn the words included in the competition.
During the competition, students have one minute to translate a word from English and spell it in the target language. 50 words will be learned per stage, totalling 200 words if students reach the national final, to be held in July 2014. The national winner for each language will see their school awarded a free Key Stage 3 subscription to Vocab Express for 2014/15. Come and chat to us to find out more, or visit www.flsb.co.uk.
And if you needed another incentive to come along, we’ll be offering all visitors to our stand an exclusive 10 per cent discount for first year subscriptions. So what are you waiting for? Get the Language Show Live in your diary now!
