European Day of Language at IES Nacka

European Day of Language at IES Nacka

We celebrated our annual European Day of Languages at IES Nacka with several engaging activities to promote language learning. Year 9 students taught Year 6 basic French and Spanish. Year 9 were great role models that acted as inspiration for the younger ones.


Students created a wall in which they wrote greetings in all the languages they know. At IES Nacka we have a lot of students who speak another language rather than Swedish or English and this was their chance to celebrate it.


¡Gracias! Merci! Tack! Thanks!


Språkolympiaden 2019!

Språkolympiaden 2019!

On Wednesday 6th March, 2019, students represented IES Nacka in the Språkolympiaden 2019 competition at Kungsholmen Gymnasium.

The contest began with French. Anna Lundgren and Lara Pallarés and Maria Clara Talaba Fernandes represented our school and at the end of 21 questions there were four schools tied on 12 points. There were five tie-break questions and Anna & Lara got 4 out of 5 questions right, taking 3rd place and were awarded a trophy!

The next competition was Spanish. IES Nacka were represented by Lisa Prahl, Lydia Brorsson and Jaya Kask. This was such a close competition and at the end of 21 questions there was a tie-break for second and third place. The questions were tricky but Lisa & Lydia put up a great performance but were just pipped at the post by IES Älvsjö. So close! We finished 4th.

Straight after Spanish came the English contest and our hopes rested with August Kjellsson, Camilla Uggla Pino and Esther Wikström. They put up a great performance tackling some very difficult questions. Our team were beaten in a tie-break against IES Täby and came 4th. A very close-run contest indeed.

And finally, the Swedish competition began with IES Nacka’s team of Edvard Eriksson and Iheb Daboussi. They fought really hard and answered some tricky questions on a range of Swedish topics. At the end there was a battle for 3rd place in which the organisers had to think up several more tie-break questions on the spot as they had run out of questions to separate IES Huddinge and ourselves. In the end, the last question on August Strindberg caught out our team and IES Huddinge took third place and in a very close contest.

We returned to school with one shiny trophy and our heads held high as our students did their best and most of all, they enjoyed participating in this exciting competition for the whole of the Stockholm region. If you visit our reception, you will see the trophy for French in out glass cabinet in reception. Great work!
