I want to share a great opportunity given by British Council and TRT ( Turkish TV Channel) in Turkey. Here are all the details ;
“Word on the Street” is an exciting new English Language teaching programme co-produced by the BBC and the British Council. Word on the Street looks at real everyday English and also introduces viewers to different aspects of U.K. youth culture. It is broadcast on TRT Okul every Sunday at 22:25!
If you’re a learner of English, now it’s your turn!
Just like ‘Word on the Street’, which introduces the U.K. to you living room, we know that you have lots of stories to tell about the people and places in your street.
Visit LearnEnglish site to see videos from Word on the Street to get some ideas. Tell us about your street on video… Share it on Facebook… Have the chance to see your video on national TV and win exciting prizes… It’s time to be famous!
If you are a teacher of English, help your students participate in this fun competition!
As an English teacher, you may sometimes find it difficult to demonstrate to your students that English is not just grammar, grammar, grammar but a living skill that they can use in real life. The My Word on the Street competition is a fun and motivating way to help them practice their English.
If you’d like to help your students participate in the competition, we have prepared a sample lesson plan for you to use in the classroom. You can also visit LearnEnglish site to see the videos from the original Word on the Street TV series to give you more great lesson ideas.
