Like every year our school organised a competition in English which took place on the 8th and 10th December 2009. The competition was for the 7th grade (the younger category) and the 8th+9th grades (the older category). It consisted of two parts - listening and talking on the chosen topic. First we had to listen to the tape and then complete a paper with questions. The first part was based on the listening, the second one was correcting mistakes. After that we had to wait for the talking part. First of all the teachers asked us to introduce ourselves (hobbies, character, etc.). Then we had to choose a topic and talk about it for a couple of minutes. If we didn´t know what else to say, they just asked us some additional questions about the given topic. I think that it was quite nice and I really enjoyed it.
