leave a comment »

The finals of a national level English language competition in Italy, took place between 21st and 24th of May in Cervia, Italy. The competition attracted huge interest this year with over 19,000 students from 500 schools. The participants were divided into different categories according to school grade: Joey (primary school level), Wallaby (middle school level), Grey (first two years of secondary school) and Red (second half secondary school). For the final part of the competition students took a live Cambridge English exam and they also had free time to visit the Mirabilandia amusement park. All finalists will gain a Cambridge English certificate. The three finalists with the highest results in each category will be presented with their Cambridge English certificates at  an exclusive ceremony in Villa Wolkonsky, the British Ambassador’s Residence in Rome.

The Kangourou competition in English, is the only project for English language accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education as “project of excellence” and is jointly organized by Kangourou Italia, Cambridge English Language Assessment and the AISLi Network of Schools.
