British English Olympics
Our Secondary students can take part in the British English Olympics. The main purpose of this event is to promote public speaking and carry out presentations in an international environment. Participants will travel to London to take part in a series of workshops and competitions following a main subject, as well as presentations, debates, improvisations, etc. In addition, they will have the opportunity to meet students their age from all over the world, as the event has representatives from twenty different countries.
This two-week intensive programme is aimed at developing skills such as critical thinking, critical analysis, problem solving, leadership, public speaking, teamwork, negotiation, debating, and a persuasive and convincing use of the English language.
Last year was the first time we took part in the event, where we won the coveted ‘Mystery Challenge’ award.
The programme consists of twelve days of Business lessons in London and is aimed at Baccalaureate 1 students. In these classes, students learn strategies to sell products, understand the importance of their design, set financial goals, launch a marketing plan, analyse competition, and launch a brand and its main objectives. Students will gain first hand experience in a company in London, where they will learn their modus operandi and business model.
