The Language Fair is an unnecessary, enormous waste of time and energy for not only students and teachers, but also parents. First of all, the students and teachers uselessly, pointlessly work on this for a month, while they could be doing more productive work and improving their language and grammar. Instead, they do this Language Fair just to prove to the parents they can memorize and say 4 lines of the script as part of a play. Second of all, the parents have better things to do then come watch the Language Fair. Many parents work or have little children to take care of, and in general better things to do then come watch their child recite a few lines. Instead of doing the Language Fair for the students to prove their level of language to their parents, they could study harder and work on actual productive work and bring home good grades to prove their level. This productive work could include worksheets, conversations in class to improve language use, and even small formative quizzes. All of these things would teach the students much more than the Language Fair would. You may say it's fun and it's a good experience, but it's not. Students don't enjoy this and think it's a waste of time. Plus, since when is school supposed to prioritize fun over productivity?

In conclusion, I think the Language Fair is unnecessary and could be replaced by more productive and educating work.
