Lingumi & SoapBox Labs are running an English speaking contest!


Who are SoapBox Labs?

SoapBox Labs are the world leaders in voice technology for children. Their technology listens while your children speak out loud, and gives feedback on the quality of their speech and pronunciation.  In short - they help us teach your children to speak English like natives!

What is this contest?

For the second year in a row, SoapBox Labs has partnered with Lingumi to run an English speaking contest for Lingumi children all over the world, and this year, we’ve made it a global competition! SoapBox Labs will feature the winning videos on their website and social media, so that other people can also see and celebrate your children’s achievements! The competition is being held in the Lingumi Families Global Facebook group.

Winners will win a prize from SoapBox Labs and Lingumi! There are 10 main prizes, and 5 “wild-card” prizes, for videos that really stand out! 

The competition will run for 5 weeks, and we’ll announce 2 main winners and 1 wildcard winner each week. You can submit up to 3 entry videos.

Your children’s videos will be judged on the following criteria

- Confidence

- Accuracy

- Creativity

- Fun!
