Fellow William Smith facilitated and served as the judge for an English spelling bee in in Vladivostok, Russia. The event was organized by a Student Council of the Intercultural Communication and Linguistics Department and FEFU. Smith read the words aloud, used them in an example sentence and judged student participants’ spelling and pronunciation. Additionally, he discussed the value of proper spelling and the continued study of English.
Students were exposed to the native pronunciation of various words in English, allowing them the opportunity to comprehend and spell new vocabulary. This event allowed students to effectively test their knowledge of English and proved to be both challenging and rewarding for them.
