Student Workshop 2016

Student Workshop 2016

Dear English teachers,

This will be a somewhat different (and earlier) format to keep you informed about our activities and is the first letter giving you some preliminary but important information, such as dates and a new feature – an earlier Student Workshop. By attending it, your students may gain insight into our competition and what is required. Past National Finals winners – those who went to London, explain and tell about their experience in London and what is needed to succeed at this competition. Students are encouraged to ask questions.

Dates: Workshop/Seminar – Saturday November 12, 11:00 at Rigas Valsts 1.Gimnazija, Raina Blv. 8, room will be posted. It is free of charge and registration is not required.


Theme or Topicof Public Speaking Competition (provided by ESU London):

Peace is not an absence of war


Regional Finals: approx. mid February, details to follow later.

National Finals: Saturday April 8 at SSE Soros Auditorium 10:00 – 14:00. More details later.

London dates: May 8 – 12, 2017.

Membership fees have not changed: 18 Euros per school entitling 2 students, the 3rd student at an additional 7 Euros. Payment information together with 2017 School Registration Form will be sent early December.


It is hoped you will have students attending the Nov. 12 Workshop – a really valuable experience!

If there are any questions or help is needed, please be sure to let me know.

Kind regards and all the best,


Ruta Zadziorska

ESU Latvia President
