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. Click here for a copy of our most current handbook with details on the upcoming Poetry Recitation Competition.
