It’s official: the 2019 Nutty Tilez competition was defi-nut-ly a success! Over 12,900 students from across the globe took part and we are delighted to now be able to announce the winners.


1. Richard A, Chantilly High

“I prepared myself for the contest by playing Nutty Tilez! At the end of the competition I was very tired. The contest coincided with a test I was scheduled to take that same morning, so I had already spent a good part of the day getting drained of energy and focus. Keeping that level of focus for yet another few hours was very mentally exhausting. As soon as I was finished I went straight to sleep.

I had to start the contest about 3 hours late, so the better part of it was me trying to catch up as fast as I could. There’s a trade off between being fast and being accurate, but I had to do both in order to catch up, all while under constant pressure and while already being quite tired – that was pretty hard.

Nutty Tilez pretty much makes practicing vocabulary a game and not a chore. I really like learning this way and I find it very effective. In fact, I come across words and phrases from Nutty Tilez all the time while reading and listening to French and it’s always satisfying to see what I learn manifest itself in real life.”
