    National Spelling Bee 2019

    2 March 2019National Spelling Bee 2019
    Gaining more and more interest every year in Kazakhstan and in the number of people wishing to participate, the Spelling Bee contest is a large part of American culture. For over 90 years, schoolchildren across America have been participating in the Spelling Bee competition. The participant is required, being on the stage, to correctly spell the word named by the host. The difficulty lies in the fact that many English words are not spelled the way they are pronounced.
    This year Kazakhstani students showed great enthusiasm: 764 college and university students registered for the competition. Today 33 participants, representatives of 13 regions of Kazakhstan, competed among themselves in the American corner in Astana. The winners were Ramazan Yeltai - Astana, Nurgul Adamzhanova - Pavlodar, Alexander Lopukhov - Astana, Arsen Alpysbay - Oskemen. All four participants received valuable prizes.
