Welsh National Spelling Bee Competition 2017/2018

image for launch plainThis annual event is designed to support students in year 7 who are studying French, German, Spanish and Welsh Second Language. The competition enables pupils to improve their spelling and vocabulary, encourages correct pronunciation and most importantly raises confidence levels. Different to a monolingual Spelling Bee, pupils in Wales have the option of receiving their words in English or Welsh.

Pupils compete in preliminary school rounds from September culminating in the Spelling Bee National Final at the end of the summer term. The National Final welcomes finalists from schools across Wales competing for the titles in the four languages.
