Last week there was a global challenge in French vocabulary learning. The website, Vocab Express, set a challenge for school to learn as much vocabulary, through a form of flash cards. Our school, which had a total of 35 players managed to rack up a massive score of 114,105 points putting us 16th overall… in the world!

We also competed in the Piccolo Cup, which can only have a total of 150 players, and we came 5th, I am just going to say this again. We had 34 players and we came 5th.

There were a couple of standout players, Annabelle McAdam, Year 11, who scored a massive 15,785 points closely followed by Ailsa Legg, Year 10, who managed 13,070 points.

Our French teacher, Madame Hornung, thinks that it was such as success that she will be holding a school wide competition. As a French GCSE student it has really improved the speed and accuracy of my vocabulary learning.
