BEO

The British English Olympics (BEO) is an exciting academic contest targeted to the world’s brightest international students. The competition spans just under three weeks and it takes place in prestigious boarding schools in England.

The British Schools has sent two teams, The Poppies and The 21 Free Birds. Led by four teachers from the Senior English Department, thirty eight of our students are currently spending unforgettable weeks in the UK, representing our school and our country, while also enjoying an amazing British cultural experience.

The BEO is focused on educational excellence. It provides an opportunity for our students to read, re-write and perform Shakespeare, to write and perform a song about empathy, charities and fundraising campaigns for the world’s most vulnerable people, to debate about the economical, ecological and social impact of unsustainable tourism, to explore distant cultures such as Belize’s, and to put their public speaking and improvisation abilities to the test. Nonetheless, most of all, the BEO experience is all about learning beyond the classroom. It is a chance to meet teenagers from all over the world and to develop a sense of integration, adaptation and friendly competition.  

All in all, the BEO is an unmissable and enriching experience that will surely provide strong foundations to prepare our students for the challenges of school and life.
