Skill Description Competition Speaking

Winners announced!

Thank you to everyone who entered last week’s competition. We were so impressed by the effort everyone put into their explanations and descriptions - so well done!

It was very difficult to choose just two winners but, after a lot of thinking, we decided our first winner is...

grateful_journalist of Lake Bank Pioneer Preparatory, who gave us a whistle-stop tour of their country, Tunisia. They described the sights, the climate and even some history!

And our second winner is...

upbeat_musician of Green Hill Academy Kibuli, who took a different approach by giving us a short but beautiful description of the snow-covered mountain tops in Uganda.

Fantastic work!

The next Issue is a very special one... it's our Global Conversation, where students from around the world will be hopping on the Hub to share what they think.

So let's get started! Our first competition gives you a chance to share something about where you're from.

Your challenge this week is to tell us where you are from and say one thing that you wish other people knew about your country.

For example, what it's like to live there, a famous landmark or a tradition.

Don't forget to explain why you think it's good for people to know!

Need some help? Use this sentence starter:

I live in (insert your country here). I wish people knew that in this country... (insert what you wish people knew here). This is a good thing for people to know because... (insert a reason here).

We will award stars for the posts we feel have plenty of details and written in developed sentences and give an original perspective on their country (so doesn't copy what everyone else has said!)

The deadline for entries is Friday April 23rd at midday. PLEASE ENTER ONLY ONCE and make sure your work is your own. Good luck!
