National Spelling Bee Competition 2021-22
The Spelling Bee competition is designed to support pupils in year 7 who are studying French, German, Spanish and Welsh as a second language in English medium schools in Wales. 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 words in Welsh or English.
The competition consists of 4 stages or rounds with the number of words increasing with each round. This year all rounds will be organised at a school level, with a virtual award ceremony organised in the summer term 2022 by Routes Cymru.
