  • Когда смотришь на единственный документ, который получили учителя для проведения школьной олимпиады в Гомеле (голый ЛГТ и больше ничего) и сравниваешь с Оршей, чувствуешь себя нищим. С другой стороны, нужно ли школьную олимпиаду проводить на таком уровне, как это делается в Орше? У нас аудирование и устная речь готовятся, но проверяются на втором этапе.

  • Я ученица 11 класса города Гомеля и в моём учебном заведении ещё не было школьный олимпиады.И честно говоря ,становится немного жудковато,если кто-то до олимпиады посещал этот сайт.Возникает «небольшая» несправедливость между участниками.Сегодня утром нечаянно наткнулась на эту ссылку и решила не идти на олимпиаду,хотя желание было.Всем желаю удачи)

    • Это олимпиада, которая проходила в сельских школах, она присылалась из РОО. У вас другая будет. Идите.
