Конкурс по английскому языку для 7-8 классов «Звездный час»

Конкурс на английском языке можно проводить как внеклассное мероприятие в рамках Недели иностранного языка для учащихся 7-8 классов. Для игры подобран страноведческий материал. Задача конкурса - побуждать и поддерживать их интерес к углубленному изучению и расширению знаний в области географии, истории и культуры англоговорящих стран.
