Poetry Festival

Reciting poetry can help enrich the students’, vocabulary as well as improve their pronunciation in English. It also gives them a taste of public speaking and helps develop their confidence.

In this competition, students from 3rd grade to 8th grade recited a poem of their choice from a pre-selected list provided by ESU Chile.

Interschool Participant Winners sent their MP4 format video presentation and our experts in public speaking  evaluated their delivery, focusing on their expression, clarity and interpretation of the poem.

Every year, students from all over the country participate in this competition, learning and sharing with others as well as taking the first step towards public speaking.
