International Language Competition

The MFL department has participated this year 2021 for the first time in the International Language Competition (IL). Twenty-four thousand students participated in it and IES Helsingborg has been awarded second place in Spanish and third place in German in the Helsingborg region.

The purpose of IL is to encourage students to read modern languages and increased their interest in acquiring knowledge about cultural aspects, history, and general relevant societal issues in the countries where the target language is spoken.
