Based on the experiences of last year, the competition has inspired 20% more students to choose Hebrew as a third language in our school. Based on the feedback, it has become evident that the competition is an important part of the lives of the schools; students await it, and since last year, many entered the competition again at a higher level, giving themselves an incentive to develop.
The first three places of all the award categories received a free chance to take a language exam, and almost everyone could take home gift books and certificates. All categories saw a student from another school in first place - there was real playful competition, with some results simply too close to call.
The participants were greeted by middle school principal Kinga Mahr, head organizer Kriszta Papp-Kovács, and ECL representative Johanna Felcser.
The competition was open, anyone interested could come in a listen to the students. Each teacher was prompting their own students, and at the end, the important and difficult decisions were made together.
