It's game on as ABC3 premieres the exciting new high energy game show Go Lingo! where contestants aged 11 to 12 years old battle it out during games focusing on spelling, grammar and Australia's Indigenous culture. During each episode three contestants compete for maximum points in a variety of fun hi-tech games using the latest in touch screen technology. Watch as they jump into a pit of letters in Chuck A, shoot digital basketballs in Shoot Out and skirmish with digital paint balls in Splat all while focusing on spelling and grammar. A unique feature of Go Lingo! is the segment My County which profiles Indigenous languages from around Australia. Audiences will learn about unique languages of towns, cities and remote areas from across the country and will pick up and use a few words from the traditional owners. Following a nationwide search, 19-year-old Torres Strait Islander Alannah Ahmat was selected to host Go Lingo!. "I feel really proud to be a part of this show, it's an amazing experience. I've always been encouraged to be myself and be proud of who I am, so to be on a show that celebrates my culture and the cultures of Indigenous people across Australia is just amazing," Alannah said.
