Four pupils from Framlingham College achieved outstanding results at this year’s MFL Speaking Competition, with all four reaching the final and two going on to be crowned winners.

Year 9 pupils Archie B and Harry W, and Year 10 pupils Bella E and Rosa S were all finalists in the Essex and East Anglian regional branch of the ‘Have Your Say’ MFL speaking competition, having got through the first round on March 7 at Woodbridge School.

Harry W (pictured) along with fellow pupil Archie B, won the Year 9 Spanish category.

Organised by the Association for Language Learning East Anglia, the group travelled to the final at Thomas Audley School in Colchester on May 14, where they were judged on their pronunciation, speaking performance and written dialogue skills.

Now in its 33rd year, the competition final saw the Year 9 pupils perform one piece of open-ended dialogue without notes, while Year 10 pupils were expected to write their own dialogue based on one of two outlines provided, using at least eight phrases from those given, in a maximum of 14 lines.

Year 10 pupils Bella E and Rosa S reached the final of the French speaking category.

Rosa and Bella were runners up in the Year 10 French category, with Archie and Harry winning the Year 9 Spanish category.
