Three of my oldest students took part in the 4th International Competition in English Language HIPPO on 5 March. As usual, the exam consisted of 3 parts: reading comprehension (40 multiple choice questions, 1 point each), listening comprehension (20 questions, 1.5 points each) and writing (20 questions, 10 of the same level as the test and 10 of a higher level, 1.5 points each, and a short essay - a description of their favourite place). This time, the top 10% of participating students from each participating country will be invited to the regional semi-final round.
Our school hosted this year's preliminary round.
