IYK Speaking Contest


The 18th IYK Speaking Contest was held today and it was so much fun! The kindergarten children came in the morning and did a fantastic job. They showed excellent skills in English listening, pronunciation, intonation, communication ability, use of full sentences and great effort to speak only in English throughout the contest. The children visited a farmer in his farm, a zookeeper at her zoo and a fisherman at the beach and completed tasks and communicated in great English to earn their stickers. It was a really close competition and it was unfortunate that there could only be 3 winners per grade as everyone showed fantastic English enthusiasm. In the afternoon we held the Elementary level contest, with the children doing a similarly great job, this time tackling Eiken 5th, 4th and 3rd grade listening questions, as well as the higher grade children preparing and performing short presentations as their Speaking Test. It was great to see such a high level of English being spoken and everyone that entered should feel very proud of their efforts and we hope you feel encouraged to study harder and to challenge yourselves more with your English education. Again, well done everyone and thank you to all of the parents for their continued support.

If you entered or not, we are looking forward to seeing you at next year’s Speaking Contest
