Spelling Bee Competition in MFL

What is the Spelling Bee about?

The Foreign Language Spelling Bee is a competition for students in Year 7 to build on the work they do with the Routes into Languages National Spelling Bee by practising and improving their vocabulary, spelling and memory skills in a foreign language (French, German or Spanish).
The competition has 4 stages (two school stages, a regional final and a national final), and the competitors must learn 50 words per stage in their chosen language, totalling to 200 words if they reach the national final.
The contestants are tested at the end of each stage with random words being called out in English which they are required to translate into the target language and then spell out each letter individually also in the target language.  They have to translate and spell as many words as possible in a very clear manner in one minute!
