Hippo Third competition in English language

In 2015 Global Input and Global Hippo Associations organizes Hippo International Competition in English language for the third time in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. This year Albania takes part the first time ever and from here only the Austrian school in Shkoder. The main goal of the competition is to connect students from different countries and different cultures, to bring them together and make them all part of our big multicultural family.
In addition, through the competition the students get familiar with internationally recognized exams in English. Thanks to the internationally recognized examinations board, Pearson – EDI, the tests used in the preliminary round of the competition are original reading and listening tests. A special “thank you” goes to SWAN Institute from Dublin, thanks to whom the final round winners will have a chance to visit beautiful Ireland.
