Dear candidates and teachers,
It has been a pleasure working with you over the past “HIPPO” year - we genuinely enjoyed it. The Hippo team appreciate your confidence in us and your willingness to help regardless of the time or situation. I hope we will have the opportunity to work together regularly in the years to come.
Hippo competition is organized and run by volunteers, including
the organizers themselves as well as a high number of teachers
from the participating schools. Without the help of the
teachers, it would be impossible to run the competition. Thanks
to these teachers, the main goal of the competition is achieved:
to connect students from different countries and different
cultures, to bring them together and make them all part of our
big multicultural family.
Global Input and Global Hippo Associations would like to thank
hundreds of schools and thousands of teachers who made it
possible for this competition, the only one of that kind in the
world, to get better year by year.
In addition, through the competition the students get
familiar with internationally recognized exams in English.
Thanks to the internationally recognized examinations board,
Pearson – LCCI, the tests used in the preliminary round of the
competition are original reading and listening tests. After the
competition, the participating schools have the right to keep
the tests and use them in class.
