Poésíæ started as an annual French poem recitation competition in a little school. It had always been a popular event. During the pandemic, I thought it would be a good idea to expand the competition to a few more schools to spread the love of foreign languages, to help develop oracy skills and self-confidence. It had a wonderful follow up in 2021 with over 40 schools from all over the world taking part. 2022 has been tremendous! 7 languages, 250 schools from all over the world and the wonderful addition of the very popular Art competition! I am looking forward to 2023 already.
