The Fonix 2018

THE FONIX is a competition for students attending Catalan schools. It is aimed at encouraging English learning among primary and secondary school students and learners at adult education centres.
Students may participate in the competition only through the school where they are enrolled.

This year, in the 11th edition of the competition, we are introducing a new format that is organised in two stages and has the following features:
  1. Development of critical and reflective thinking.
  2. Problem-solving and seeking of creative solutions. 
  3. Use of digital environments and transmedia communication. 
  4. A focus on values related to ethical issues defined in UNESCO’s 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, equity, solidarity and social cohesion.

Catalan public, private and grant-aided schools that provide instruction at the stages and levels into which the six categories are organised:

  • CATEGORY 1: Students in 5th–6th year of primary education
