The general format for the videos is based on TikTok. That is, the videos should grab
the viewer’s interest and get them to “like” it. The videos for this competition,
however, should be 30-45 seconds in length (under 30 or over 45 seconds will result
in disqualification). And while the entertainment value of your actions and the quality
of self-presentation will be taken into account, the chief criteria will be the quantity and quality of your speech in the language you are learning. In other words, be chatty, but so that your viewer can understand you. The perspective of your judges will
be that of a native speaker your age, who wants to understand you, but also expects
to be impressed or entertained.
Each teacher is allowed to send two videos per level. You may choose the level(s) of students – level I, II, III, IV, V, or native speaker.
Please do not mix levels in a video. Videos will be judged on fluency, pronunciation, delivery, blocking/choreography
and originality. In addition, the quality of recording will be considered.
