Ella Williams (EDH UVI)

Many congratulations to Ella Williams (EDH UVI), who has received a Special Mention Certificate for her French to English translation in 'Juvenenes Translatores 2013', a translation contest for schools throughout the EU which is organised by the European Commission. As there is only one winner for each EU Member State, Ella was clearly in the final group of contenders for the UK prize in this prestigious competition.

Vicky Horbach (EDH UVI) and Tim Atkins (M UVI) also entered, with English to German and Hungarian to English translations respectively.

Ella, who last year won the Lower Sixth School Prizes for both French and Spanish, has also entered an essay competition run by the University of London Institute in Paris. Her essay is entitled "The importance of language learning'.
