Haileybury Almaty recently hosted their annual English Olympiad
Over 140 candidates competed in a challenging online round where they faced a number of tasks requiring them to analyse a range of texts and testing their knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. Their final task was a challenging essay question exploring the difference between generations. The top 26 students were then invited to participate in the final round where they sat a written exam and participated in two rounds of debates.
Standards were incredibly high and the Haileybury English teachers were impressed by the calibre and determination of the candidates.
