This academic year, Hippo International Competition in English language will be organized for the third time. Every year we are privileged to work with an evergrowing number of elementary and high schools as well as private language schools from the eight participating countries.
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 these 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 from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia, who made it possible for this competition, the only one of that kind in Europe, 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 – EDI, 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.
A special thanks goes to SWAN Institute from Dublin, thanks to whom the final round winners had a chance to visit beautiful Ireland.
