About the Event

The Language Teachers’ Association of the NT (LTANT) is pleased to announce that registration are now open for Language Fest – Speaking Competition 2021. Last year, Language Fest was held online with a record number of entries. We will once again be holding this competition ‘online’ with students able to submit pre-recorded video entries.

Eligibility

To be eligible to compete, the student is required to be enrolled in a language course in the Northern Territory. Their language teacher must also be a current member of LTANT. Background speakers are welcome to participate but need to be identified on Student Registration Form A: ‘Language spoken at home’.

Divisions

There are two divisions, Group Presentations or Individual Speeches. Within each division there are multiple ‘Year-Level’ categories.

Group Presentations are only open for students in primary and middle schools. Students in groups of 2-4, present a role play or conversation in the language they are learning at school. Each member of the group must complete Student Registration Form A. Just one Group Registration Form B must also be completed for the group. (Alternatively, please fill in the online registration form).

Individual Speech is open to all year levels allowing students to enter this competition as well as any other Speaking Competitions, such as the NT Japanese Speech Contest, or the National Australian Indonesian Language Awards (NAILA). Students give a speech on a topic of their choice or use one of the suggested topics provided on the registration form.

Prizes and Awards

All contestants will receive a participation certificate. In addition to this, the winner of each category will be presented with a prize from a language representative of the Northern Territory, such as the Goethe-Institut Sydney, Japanese Foundation, Alliance Françoise, the Indonesian Consulate, and the Confucius Institute.
