The Fonix. English Competition for Catalan Schools

Do you want to take part in an English Competition? This year we have decided to join THE FONIX 2012 (The Fifth English Competition for Catalan Schools), which is designed to promote the use of English among school students through a fun and educational competition in an informal educational setting. Participation is free. 

The competition is financed exclusively by the organisers (International House Barcelona and the Fundació Catalana de l'Esplai) and the sponsors (Cambridge University Press, El Corte Ingles, and Netlanguages). The competition also receives support from the Department of Education of the Government of Catalonia, as part of its plan of excellence for the promotion of the use of English in schools.

Here you will find related information and links about rulesprizes or the calendar

If you're interested in taking part, talk to your English teacher the first week after Christmas
