Maisey’s a spectacular Spanish speller

Tarporley High School’s Maisey Brown did brilliantly to reach the national finals of a Spanish language competition. Maisey progressed from the school Spelling Bee to the regional finals in Manchester and then onto the nationals in Cambridge. The format involved learning as many Spanish words as possible and then spelling as many out as possible in one minute.

In the end, Maisey came 7th, which is pretty magnificent given that 62,000 people entered in the first place!

She said: “I had a great time doing the spelling bee and I really enjoyed it!”
