The Oxford Language Race

Oxford has an almost unrivalled collection of language learning materials in 120 languages,
from Afrikaans to Zulu, built up over the years in response to requests from students,
teachers, scholars, and researchers who require practical knowledge of languages which are
out of the mainstream. Oxford is also full of very talented linguists, both specialists and
non-specialists. Through the Oxford Language Race, we wish to celebrate the diversity and
tradition of language learning at Oxford and the rich collection of materials for independent
learning in the Language Centre.

Each sponsoring college or its JCR/MCR has nominated one official racer and a reserve
from among its members. On 9 May, these participants will assemble and draw a language
to learn from scratch from a pool of twenty less widely taught European languages. The
winner, to be announced at the awards presentation on 14 June, will be the person who
makes
most progress in one month. He or she will win two free BMI British Midland tickets to any
of their destinations in Europe.

The Oxford Language Race is an event within the European Year of Languages 2001,
aimed at increasing awareness and appreciation of the richness of Europe's linguistic
heritage.
The Race will raise money for Reading Quest, a local charity which helps youngsters who
are
struggling with reading.

The Language Centre is grateful to BMI British Midland, Oxford University Press,
Hodder and Stoughton, and Routledge for their generous support of the Oxford Language
Race.
