This competition has now closed.
The German Olympics (IDO) is the biggest competition for the German language, with over 100 students meeting to compete every two years.

The German Olympics will be coming to the UK for the second time, taking place from Friday 27 April to Saturday 28 July 2018.

Schools are invited to send two secondary school students to participate. In order to take part, students should meet the following conditions:

  • Have been born between 2001 to 2004
  • Not be a native speaker
  • To have spent no longer than six months in Germany

A preliminary decision will be made on 27 April 2018 at the Goethe-Institut in London. Students will have to prepare a two minute video in response to the question ‘how did learning German change your life?’.

Videos should be uploaded to YouTube with a link sent to teacher_services-london@goethe.de by Friday 16 March 2018.

For further information on this event, please see the Goethe-Institut website.
