GUST Holds Language Competition for High school Students
Kuwait City, 27 December 2021: Students from the Lycée Français de Koweït were invited to a Spanish Reading Competition organized by the Humanities & Social Sciences Department at Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST). The competition consisted of reading exercises in Spanish that each participant performed in front of three judges. The competition focused on an enriched reading of the text rather than a basic enunciation.
The exercises consisted of short paragraphs for the students to demonstrate their familiarity with the Spanish language and also the use of punctuation and pronunciation rules. Fluency was also evaluated according to the following three aspects: accuracy, appropriate expression, and phrasing to reflect the meaning of the passage. Those aspects will be measured to select a solo winner.
This competition is one of many events and activities held throughout the year for high school students showcasing GUST’s campus and its facilities, as well as introducing prospective students to a university environment.
