The Poetic Games offered an international call for entries of sports-related poetic slogans. Among the candidates, some proposed poems in their native languages, languages that are taught at Inalco.

As part of this project, Inalco will host and promote 9 winning poems from the foreign-language writing competition: Croatian, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Arabic, Chinese, Maoré, Malagasy and Greek.

Until September, we invite you to discover the selection of poetic slogans on sport and the body displayed on the 2nd floor windows of Inalco's Pôle des langues et civilisations (Paris 13e).

We congratulate the authors of the poems:

  • Ukrainian: Halyna Zelena
  • Chinese: Ming Chi
  • Malagasy: Gabriel Randrianandra
  • Russian: Victoriia Shaibakova
  • Croatian: Lucija Štimac
  • Moorish: Shaina Moindjie
  • Arabic: Meryem Lahlou
  • Greek: Magdalini Topalidou
  • Romanian: Laura-Cristina Santa

We would like to thank the teachers who offered proofreading and correction of the translations: Iryna Dmytrychyn, Li Jinjia, Louise Ouvrard, Rémi Camus, Natasa Cilar, Nousbati Bouchouroine, Aboubakr Chraïbi, Stéphane Sawas, Cécile Folschweiller and her students.
