The International English Olympiad (IEO) for class 8 is an exam to search for young linguistics, youngsters who have become maestros in the English language. The content of the tests is designed to focus on communication and use of English language, rather than rote learning and correct grammar only. For example, it might be correct to say 'I'm taking my lunch', but in international usage, this would be incorrect, as this would imply you were moving it somewhere. Thus, it would be more correct to say 'I'm having lunch' (consuming).
