The Festival of the Performing Arts  (Languages)


The Festival of Languages is back and will take place in January 2022

 

 The French,  Jèrriais  and Modern Languages Sections of the Jersey Eisteddfod now make up a Competitive Festival of Performing Arts for languages which will be held in January each year.

 

Details for French will be available on the Website from Mid-November and details for other Sections will follow.

 

  •  French                                                                                             
  •  Jèrriais                                                                                                
  •  Modern Languages:

                  German,

                  Italian,

                  Mandarin Chinese,

                  Polish,

                  Portuguese,

                  Russian

                  Spanish

 

Independent adjudicators are engaged for each Section, and each competitor receives an appraisal.  From it competitors learn how to improve their performance.

 

The Jersey Eisteddfod encourages its competitors to consider the words of Sir Walford Davies:  

 

"The ideal of the competitive festival is not to gain a prize or defeat a rival, but to pace one another on the road to excellence".
