Language Fest 2024 - Speech competition

About the Event

The Language Teachers’ Association of the NT (LTANT) is pleased to announce that registration will be opened on Monday 15 July for Language Fest - Speaking and Poster Creation Competition in 2024. First of all, we would like to express our deepest thanks to Alatai Holiday Apartments, The Confucius Institute, Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia, Consulate-General of Japan in Sydney and The Japan Foundation, Sydney for supporting this event. This year, the competition will again be broadened to allow students to both spoken and written work. We will be receiving submissions to this competition ‘online’ with students able to submit pre-recorded video and digital poster entries. If you wish to register, please read the following guidelines carefully before registering.

Students are permitted to compete in Language Fest 2024 if their language teachers are members of LTANT. Teachers need to check who holds their institutional membership as to which students are permitted to enter competition.

[Speech Competition topics]

Students may choose their own topic or use one of the prompts below for their speeches:

  • Contemporary Issues:
  • When I travelled to……..
  • My ideal holiday destination
  • A profile of a famous person
  • My Dream Weekend
  • Self-Introduction and Hobbies
  • Interview

*Indonesian language students should visit www.naila.org.au to see suggested categories.

** Japanese language students who are participating in NihonGO will need to check the competition details if they plan to enter into both competitions as the specifications are different.
