Haris of M3/12, participated in Spelling Bee Competition. Spelling Bee Competition consists of 3 rounds. This year, the competition was held at Wat Rajabopit School, Bangkok. It started at 9.30 a.m. and students took a break at 11 a.m. to have lunch. Mentor teachers could see their students during lunch time. The competition then resumed at 12 noon and lasted until 3.30 p.m.
As for the competition proper, judges will give 20 words for students to spell during the first round. Students have to at least get 10 correctly spelled vocabulary to pass through the next round. In the second round judges will ask the students to spell out 20 words and same goes for the third round. It was indeed a really challenging experience for students to take part in this competition knowing that they have to read and memorize if possible thousands of English words. Spelling Bee is like deep sea diving, students can have a good experience before competition and during the competition. (T. Nuro)
