Melbourn Village College students answered more than 175,000 questions in a variety of languages as they took part in the Language Perfect Northern Hemisphere Championships.
All students were registered for the online competition where the linguists scored points by answering questions correctly twice in a row.
Melbourn finished 25th overall with students competing in Spanish, Mandarin, French, Japanese and Italian. Most chose Spanish, however, with Melbourn finishing an impressive 10th overall.
Leading the way for Melbourn was Rosie Elliott, who earned 5,000 points to earn an Emerald certificate.
A further 13 students also gained certificates with Gabrielle Phillips and Ben Woodrow both achieving gold awards after topping 3,000 points.
