The International Linguistics Olympiad is hosted this year in the Isle of Man (inbetween Northern Ireland and England). The IOL consists of two competitions: the individual competition (lasting six hours) and the team competition (lasting ‘just’ three hours). There is a programme of social events to fill the rest of the five days. This event, like the rest of UKLO’s offerings, is entirely free to both the participants and their schools. This is possible because of generous financial support from our sponsoring organisations.

The UK squad will consist of the following two teams of competitors:
