For the third time in a row The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium has taken part in this online competition. 30 students from the DCG had an opportunity to challenge their English on 29th November, 2019. This year 16,472 students from 624 schools from 25 countries have participated, of who 508 from Slovenia. We are very happy to announce that Mark Loborec (year 4) was awarded first place in Slovenia and 13th place all together and Gašper Ljubič (year 3) was awarded third place in Slovenia.
The Best In English contest is a unique online English language competition within the EU and beyond. It is opened to all high schools and their students aged 14-19. The level of the test is B1 – C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The best students win a 2-week trip to Canada. Students come mostly from European countries; however this year there were also participants from Switzerland, Turkey, Israel and Indonesia.
We are proud of Mark’s and Gašper’s success and congratulate them upon this fantastic achievement! Their mentor is Katja Gorjup, teacher of English at The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium.
