Battle of the Books 2017

Our team met at 6:00 am this past Saturday to fly to Seoul for the Battle of the Books 2017. Over 200 students gathered at Seoul Foreign School to compete. There were 19 teams from 9 international schools.

For the past three months, we have been busy preparing for this big book trivia competition. We read ten books and then practiced answering comprehension questions about them.

We competed in 5 matches... Each match had two rounds (lasting ten minutes each). We took turns answering questions about the ten books.

At the end of the day, we were excited to have earned 11 out of a possible 15 points.  What a great example of hard work, collaboration, enthusiasm, and sportsmanship!

We relaxed at Lotte Mall before heading back to Jeju.

Well done, everyone!


  1. A great experience for all ten! Hats off to each of you. Your hard​ work paid off!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful event. Pats on the back for your school. Well done
