We are very pleased to welcome everyone to the web site of the English Dictation Competition.
English Dictation is an educational event promoting the learning and practicing of the English language. It is an open, nationwide competition for pupils over 12 years old.
The texts for the eliminations and the final of English Dictation are written by professor Jack Lonergan from the University of Westminster.
The Dictation is widely promoted by the media both locally and nationwide.
There were about 1500 students taking part in the eliminations held in a great number of schools from our region. It was possible to take part in the eliminations in two ways: in the on-line eliminations, by listening to the text that was broadcasted by Radio PiK; or in the secondary and high schools which decided to cooperate.
We would like to express our great gratitude to all school teachers participating and helping with the eliminations!
We regret that that last two editions (2007, 2008) couldn’t happen but we are pretty sure that we will go ahead with the 2009 edition regardless of any obstacles.
Please feel free to read about last 4 editions and enjoy listening to the great voices of Allan Rickman and Derek Jacobi.
