Learning a new language can be an exciting and roller costar experience for most of us. Adapting to a new language not only helps us in our career endeavours but also opens the doors to new opportunities. There are lots of benefits that come with learning a new language, such as it improves vocabulary in your native language and communication skills. As per research, it has been found that a new language can give you a positive attitude and make you less prejudice toward people who are different. It also helps us know more about that particular country and immerse its culture, which language we are interested in. Keeping the advantages of learning a new language in mind, International Education Washington has brought a fantastic program called “Why Learn Languages Online Competition” for 2021. This opportunity is targeting only middle school and high school students who reside in Washington State.
The theme for the Why Learn Languages Online Competition of 2021 is “How can learning a world language help in a very challenging time”. All participants need to compose an essay of 400-800 words or create a poster on the given prompt. If you want to send an essay as your entry, make sure it should be in English or your targeted language. On the other hand, students who are interested in creating posters need to be careful of the originality of the work. The poster must be hand-drawn or computer-generated as well as graphically attractive and use dynamic messaging. The program would like to welcome superior ideas, messages, and content rather than just writing/drawing skills. Winners will get handsome cash prize depending on the place they secure in this program. So get ready to be a part of this fantastic program and send your best work to International Education Washington today!
