Some schools offer pupils some training before they take the Round 1 test. Here’s some training material that you might like to consider for use with pupils. It’s all in powerpoint format, but some shows have an audio commentary.
- A number of shows by Babette Newsome produced for her school’s Linguistics Club
- A show by Dick Hudson, taking you through three problems of increasing difficulty: ‘The Linguistics Olympiad – how to succeed’.
- An introductory show used by Louis Blois with his English Language students: ‘A is for Apple, Arbitrariness and Ox’
- A follow-up show used by Louis Blois: ‘L is for Linguistic Methods (and lions)’ This show discusses a Greek problem in a separate file.
If you’re more ambitious, check out the training material for those preparing for Round 2.
