ENGLISH FOR EIGHTH-GRADERS AT II LO
This year’s edition of the English with Czesław – Time for English competition attracted an exceptionally large number of participants. As many as 142 eighth-graders from 15 primary schools of Jaworzno came. The participants faced quite a challenge, as they had to solve many tasks and meet the competition requirements in a short time. The students had to solve an exam-type test for 45 minutes. They had to present their knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, listening comprehension and reading comprehension, as well as write a short opinion piece on whether travel educates.
The Mayor of Jaworzno patronised the competition, which was co-organised by RODN „WOM” in Katowice. During the event, thanks to the Regional Centre for In-Service Teacher Training, English teachers from primary schools received methodological training led by the chairperson of the competition jury.
The jury, which comprised all four II LO English teachers and primary school teachers, under the chairmanship of dr Barbara Czwartos from the Regional Teacher Training Centre „WOM” in Katowice, selected the winners of the competition. They are:
