CONNECTING THROUGH KNOWLEDGE

About

Eurasian Spelling Bee Lexical Skills Competition is organised by ELPC International (English Language Proficiency Competition LLC) in cooperation with Gatehouse Awards Limited United Kingdom to promote Lexical skills in English language, and challenge students from the countries where English is taught as a foreign language around the world to improve their lexical skills, particularly in respect to spelling. It inspires students to read more, in line with the theme “Read to Succeed”, in order to encourage them to learn the major principles and patterns of English, expand their vocabulary and work on their pronunciation. It also enhances students’ development of poise and communication under pressure and provides an opportunity for them to get exposed to the national limelight. It also brings attention to the schools’ pressing literacy needs and prepares and equips teachers with the skills to teach English. The main goal is to create and nourish friendly relations and national understanding between young people interested in English language from private and public schools from the countries where English is taught as a foreign language around the world.
