To enter, participants in this contest must create a video explaining what they will gain from speaking better English .  The contest will promote the study of English in Kazakhstan by highlighting the many opportunities speaking English can provide people in different professions.  U.S. Embassy Press Attaché Wren Elhai said, “If you have always wanted to improve your English, now is the time!  Whether you are a student, scientist, teacher, or businessperson, we would like to hear from you.”
