Children from Manchester Primary Schools are getting the chance to win a Language Experience Day from la Academia, by drawing a picture that shows why they would like to learn a foreign language.

The winning picture will entitle the child’s school to a full Language Day Experience in Chinese, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, German, French or Spanish. In addition the winning child will win a £15 book token, and their picture will be framed and presented to them.

In addition to the overall winner, two runners up will be chosen and will receive book tokens to the value of £10, and every school that enters will receive a special “we love languages” certificate from la Academia. The Language Experience Day will be delivered in the winning school on an agreed date in July 2014


la Academia’s Language Experience Days are a great chance for children in KS1 and KS2 to gain exposure to a language, and to a teacher from overseas.

Entries should be lively and colourful, and on an A4 sheet of paper.
Entry is open to all primary school children. All drawings should have the entrants’ name, age, school and year group on the back.
