Spell Bee Champions Interview with CNN
All 8 champions were invited to CNN for the interview , how did they learned and how did they know those difficult words. CNN anchor person asked if any of those words were new to them. More she added how did you guys studied any practiced all these things. Further she asked, how will they distribute the money. Answer to these questions were amazing. One of the champion said, it is not about the money, it is about the memory and practice and effort we make. They said , we study with root and pattern and went into detail for every single word. That is the technique and that is how we study and practice.
Most of the words were so difficult even till now, i am not able to pronounce them. Many of words were new to me, honestly i have never heard of them before in my entire life.
Most of these kids studied , 4 to 5 hours on weekends. One of the kid said, as competition cam nearer i studied about 10 hours a day.
