The event was attended by six teams, consisting of students of the I-II year majoring in English translation and students of 10-11 years of the secondary school No. 18.
Six stations with phonetics, country study, Old English, phraseology, modern slang and film translation practice were encrypted on the university grounds. The participants were guided by a specially designed map.
At each station, the students and school students were met by the teachers of the Department and the students of Master degree who tested their knowledge.
