We all live now in a competitive changing world. At Benavente we are aware of that. That´s why we always try to give our students as many tools as we can to make them competitive, willing to learn and to enhance vocabulary in their acquisition of a second language process. Students improve their learning skills and gain confidence to face public whithout hesitating. In Junior High Benavente, all students participate in the Spelling Bee contest every school year. In this case, our contest Finals were held on February 12th and 13th.
