League of Champions 2018


Our week-long global competitions are a great way to get your school enthused about language learning. We run our League of Champions competition in the autumn term from the 10th – 16th of October and our Global Challenge competition in spring.

Each sees 10s of thousands of students competing to win the top spot on our overall and individual language leaderboards. Download this leaflet for more information.

Applications for the next League of Champions are now open in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Latin, Greek, Arabic, Urdu, Hebrew, Mandarin and Japanese competitions.
