2023 Spelling Bee

Shenyang International School

Activity introduction

Founded in 1925, the Spelling Bee is the most popular English spelling competition in the United States. Players must be under 15 years old and no more than Grade 8.

Reason for holding

Spelling Bee can not only increase the English vocabulary, but more importantly, help students improve their English spelling ability. Students can spell words according to their pronunciation. In this process, students need to summarize the pronunciation rules of words, which will provide great help for English learning. It can also stimulate students' enthusiasm for learning!
