Soutěž Best in English je soutěží, která kráčí s dobou. Naši žáci jsou účastníky již osmým rokem a na své umístění mohou být někteří právem pyšní. Soutěž se stala ambiciózním projektem, který umožňuje žákům srovnání svých schopností zvládat anglický jazyk v žebříčku konkurence a to z různých úhlů pohledu i v mezinárodním měřítku. Online test je profesionálně připraven a spolupráce s jejími organizátory je prvotřídní.

My experience in Canada was awesome. I met some incredible people and visited fantastic places, and I got to experience a really different culture. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to go to such an amazing country.

Naše škola se již řadu let zúčastňuje soutěže Best in English, protože účast v této soutěži je pro naše studenty výzvou k tomu, aby si porovnali své znalosti angličtiny se studenty na školách v ČR i v zahraničí. Studenti zároveň soutěží a porovnávají si své výsledky mezi sebou navzájem a každý se snaží být ten nejlepší. Za účast v soutěži dostávají účastníci kromě jedničky i sladkou odměnu, a ti nejlepší diplom.
