The competition consists of two parts aiming to test both comprehension and production of language.
Participants’ productive skills will be assessed through a writing task, requiring them to write an essay on one of the topics offered. The essay will be graded in terms of its content as well as linguistic accuracy (grammar, vocabulary, spelling and punctuation), while the interview will give us a better insight in the student’s knowledge of the English language. All the interviews will be recorded and the best ones will be chosen by a group of professional English instructors. The winner will be the competitor who achieves the best score from these two parts.
