Spelling bee!

Today we were invited to judge an English-language spelling bee at a school in Guatemala City that is run by the sister of Noemi, director Jorge Mario's wife. We were happy to accept and were very impressed by the children's English-speaking abilities. Not only were they required to correctly spell the words, but they then had to translate them into English. The school's youngest students showed off their English skills by singing songs!

One of the winners accepts her bee-shaped trophy. She won with the word "interrogative."

The top 3 students from the youngest category.
