Language Perfect World Championships 2017: Results
Many Kardinia students of French, Japanese and Spanish participated in the 2017 Language Perfect World Championships, a competition in which school students all around the world attempt to achieve as many Language Perfect points as possible.
Yet again, Kardinia’s world ranking was impressive, coming 75th out of 1302 schools globally, and 50th out of 905 schools in Australia. We earned 37 credit awards, 26 bronze, 7 silver, 16 gold and 1 elite award. Of course, Language Perfect is not all about winning. The most important point is students enjoy learning languages through participating in the championships. If you are wondering why your friends memorise more vocabulary faster, Language Perfect may be their secret! Anyway, well done to all Kardinia participants. Here are our top scorers.
