Linguistic prowess

Some of our Year 9 students recently took part in the UK Linguistics Olympiad, tackling logic puzzles involving all kinds of languages from around the world.

This year’s challenge saw our participants sorting out word order in the language of Kiribati, translating pairs of related verbs from Mali, deciphering old Swedish runes, and picking apart complex words from the languages of the Ural mountains.

Especial congratulations Austin Z, Orla C and Isabella W for their Bronze awards; to Mae L for her Silver award; and to Inez S. for her amazing Gold award!
