STUDENTS at Colston Girls' School took third place in a language competition that was designed to test their linguistic skills.

The pupils were among year nine students from ten West of England schools who met up at the GCHQ intelligence agency in Cheltenham for the contest.

Working in teams, the students had already progressed through preliminary rounds held at Bristol University.

For the final, they had to research a specific town or region in a country where the language they were studying was spoken and make a presentation to the judges in that language.

All the pupils involved received a certificate of achievement. GCHQ staff also gave a demonstration of some less commonly taught languages that are important to their work.

The competition was organised by GCHQ and the Association of Language Learning, which hopes it promotes a greater take-up of language learning in schools.
