Language teaching centre organises competition for high school students

2018. december 14.

A specialised language competition in English was organised for the secondary schools of the county by the Language Teaching Centre of the University of Miskolc in the first semester of the 2018/19 academic year. The competition was designed to deal with several areas in terms of specialized language. The most important goal of the competition was to draw attention to the significance of learning languages and to highlight the importance of specialized language among young people who may soon become students of the University of Miskolc.

In the first week of November, the 30 teams – 3 students per team – who registered for the Nyelvmester2018 competition competed in an online round. The 7 best performing teams reached the finals, which were organized in the Language Teaching Centre on 10 December. In both rounds, students’ language skills were tested by a variety of tasks related to the fields of the university’s faculties

The "Masters" team from Fráter György Catholic Grammar School was awarded the first prize, a go-kart race donated by Avalon Park in Miskolc-Tapolca. The second and third prizes were awarded to the "Champions" and "Globetrotters" teams of Fényi Gyula Jesuit High School. All students participating in the finals received a Xixo gift package.

The competition took place within the project "Főnix ME" - Renewable University Higher Education Institutional Developments in the EFOP-3.4.3-16-2016-00015 project for the joint improvement of the quality and accessibility of higher education.
