AN online competition has ranked Colac Trinity College’s Year Nine Indonesian class the best in the world.
Students from the college competed in the Language Perfect World Championships 2012 in the Indonesian section.
The Year Nine students spent 10 days answering more than 43,800 vocabulary questions.
The class of 19 competed in the 1-to-50-student category, defeating a team of 50 by 1500 points.
Student Chloe Robbins said she found the competition helped to improve her “essential vocabulary for Indonesian”.
The students were surprised to win the worldwide contest.
“It kind of hits you like, wow, we are the best in the world,” Chloe said.
Trinity College’s head language teacher Elana Cole said she was proud of her class.
“I’m stoked that the kids could achieve such a high score, despite the difference in student numbers,” she said.
