To celebrate the European Day of Languages the EFKF and the European Commission are organizing the EDL Language Challenge on Friday the 24th of September at Europe House The Hague and online. Celebrate & join us!
How it works
Try to get your message across to your partner team in the other EU country as quickly as possible. The message will be given to you, in your own language, half an hour before the start of the challenge. Your team of 3 to 5 students translates the message into English. The message will be checked by the jury (Lions). When the whistle blows, your team will try to get the message across to your partners asap, on the EEG Anglia platform, in one of the break-out rooms. Everything will be recorded. When the receiving team has finished, they will raise the flag. The jury will stop the time and check the message. In case of inaccuracies, extra time will be added. Winner is the team that has transferred the message in the shortest time.
The Challenge will be part of an event that can either take place at Europe House The Hague or a school, college or university willing to open its doors to young people interested in international languages. The EDL Language Speed Challenge was first organised 2 years ago, when the Lviv team (Ukraine) won. Last year it did not happen because of Covid. We hope it will be a recurring event.
