2019, South Korea – For another consecutive year BULPROS supported the Bulgarian team at the International Linguistic Olympiad (IOL) as part of the company’s strategic activities aimed at investing in education and innovation.
The 17th International Linguistic Olympiad took place from July 29 to August 2, 2019, in Yongin, South Korea. This year the event gathered a record number of participants - over 350 participants from 36 countries and 54 teams, becoming the largest IOL in its history.
The Bulgarian team ranked third in the country ranking, based on the number of medals. The young Bulgarian linguists won totally six medals, two of which gold. Alexander Velinov, PM Pool Manager at BULPROS and a teacher at the German Language High School and the High School of Mathematics in Sofia, was the leader of the Bulgarian team. He has been training the young linguists and leading them at the annual International Linguistic Olympiads from the very beginning in 2003.
“We are happy to support the Bulgarian team and give the students the opportunity to develop their linguistic talent. Moreover, the work with these brilliant young people is very inspiring and rewarding for us”, commented Alexander Velinov.
BULRPOS is glad and grateful for the opportunity to support the talented students at the International Linguistic Olympiad. As one of the fastest growing technology companies, we are committed to the development and education of the young talents, so we regularly support and participate in worthwhile initiatives such as the IOL, the event “Manager for a Day”, the first Bulgarian High School of Computer Programming and Innovation in Burgas, and many others.
The IOL is one of the 13 International Science Olympiads for secondary school students and is held annually since 2003. The mission of the IOL is to inspire young students’ curiosity in linguistics and languages, spur their interests in language diversity, and encourage the production and dissemination of linguistic puzzles.
