BMS World Language Classes Participate in Online Vocabulary Tournament

French, German and Spanish students have been participating in a three-day International Nutty Tilez Tournament on  Nutty Tilez is a vocabulary game that pits students against language learners around the world.  Yesterday the students were very excited to be playing against students at Hornsby as well as those in the UK where the website “This is Language” is based.  The tournament has proven to be very motivational….students are so excited they can’t contain themselves. Tuesday, Keri Waltner had 14 students come in during their lunch/advisory to play because they couldn’t get enough.  One of these students (in 1A, so he has only had 3 months of German) got up to level 10, which is a major achievement!
