- Claremont School (St Leonards-on-Sea)
- University College School (Hampstead)
- Mary Erskine School (Edinburgh)
"On behalf of the pupils in my class who entered the competition I would like to thank the organisers very much indeed for providing a very stimulating and enjoyable experience for us. We will be back next year!"
(S. Old, Head of French, Mary Erskine School)
"We have found the competition very useful for our French learning as it brought everyone together, beginners and more advanced learners alike. Your excellent organisation and the practice online were very useful and enjoyed by pupils. The questions were well differentiated so everyone could have a go."
(M. Hood, Head of French, Claremont School)
"At a time when we are increasingly fighting an uphill battle to enthuse students about the importance and value of learning another language, this has been a breath of fresh air and very much appreciated. Merci, Merci et encore Merci!!!"
(L. Ferrari-Bradley, French Teacher, Les Quennevais School)
Lewis from the Thirsk School made the local news for his impressive score.
"Linguatrivia was a really good experience for us to learn things that we wouldn’t have known. If we didn’t know a question, we might see a word that we knew and could work out the sentence from there."
(Emily and Liam, pupils at Balfon High School)
