I have just finished my first Gymnasium Olympiad in English!)
I can tell you something about my experience.
Olympiad wasn't difficult for me because I like English so much and I think that I can do a lot of exercises well.
All teachers of English in our school are wonderful. That's why our pupils know Englsh very well.
But the teachers Ms Olena Shatrova and Ms Tetiana Savchenko had to choose the best of the best.
After that these students will have to take part in the district English Olympiad.
At the Gymnasium Olympiad we had to do 3 types of exercises.
First of all it was listening. WE were listening to the text and did some exercises after that. It was easy for me)
The Second task was writing. WE could choose one topic for our story.
Then we wrote something that we wanted about that topic. I liked that task because I like to write in English)
The third task was speaking. In my opinion, this is the most difficult task.
Every pupil had to choose 3 topics from 22 and speak about one of them.
It was interesting but I was afraid because it was difficult!)
There were 18 students and I think that they all are very clever.
But only the smartest pupils will participate in the district Olympiad)) I hope that I will be one of these pupils)))
