A Comprehensive Guide to English Contests
 Classified into Eleven Kinds of Contests within Six Major Categories


         Asking students to participate in an English language contest is one of the best ways not only to motivate students to study harder, but also to evaluate if the teaching methods being used are effective. However, some of you may hesitate when thinking about giving your students an English language contest because you are not sure what type of contest should be given, or you just don’t know how to organize a contest. From now on, you don’t need to worry about the obstacles that stop you from creating an English language contest and preparing your students for it.

         Under the six major categories—listening, speaking, reading, writing, acting and singing—A Comprehensive Guide to English Contests provides eleven kinds of English language contests. The kinds covered are; listening contests, reading contests, storytelling contests, speech contests, impromptu storytelling contests, spelling contests, dictionary look-up contests, writing contests, drama contests, reader’s theater contests, and songs and chants contests. For each different contest, the book provides you with different characteristics, evaluation methods, goals, strategies, tips, detailed descriptions and explanations. In addition, examples of contests, scripts, writing, and lyrics are also provided for teacher to use.  

         The book also features a DVD that is packed with demonstrations of different types of on-the-spot English language contests including reading, storytelling, speech, impromptu storytelling, and drama contests. A file of various award certificates is provided for you to copy and modify for different purposes, and with help from the guideline, you can customize an award certificate in just a few minutes. In addition, an audio CD recording with songs and chants is specifically designed for teachers to create a songs and chants contest right away.
