News about the ESU Workshop, held at the Rīgas Valsts 1. Ģimnāzija, Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019.
The student who wins the Nationals in Latvia is sent to London and later in the year gives a workshop to the next group of participants. The winner of the Latvian 2019 ESU speech contest was Elza Zargevica. She was sent to London to attend the international ESU finals and lead this year’s workshop. During the workshop, Elza talked about the contest in London and the people she met from other countries. Then put the attendants of the workshop through some exercises to help them prepare for the competition here in Latvia. More than 30 students attended the Workshop.
The ESU of Latvia would like to thank teacher Irena Likopa for her time arranging the place and date of the workshop in Rīgas Valsts 1. Ģimnāzija and finding volunteers to run the equipment, arrange the room and register the students attending this event. Irena’s addition of the gingerbread cookies was a welcomed surprise and added to the enjoyment of the event.
Another thanks to the Rīgas Valsts 1. Ģimnāzija for granting the ESU the continued use of their auditorium and rooms each year.
