29 February 2016

Our English is GREAT: Speak to the World competition winners have finished their UK adventures and are heading back to Brazil.

If you are in Brazil and interested in studying abroad, come along to the Salão do Estudante student fairs. We are back there this spring to answer any questions you may have about learning English in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. And this time our #EnglishisGREAT winners will be joining us too.

You will be able to speak to them to discover what it is really like to learn English in the UK. Our scholarship winners will also present seminars about their experiences of British life and culture. Each studied in a different part of the UK; Guilherme in Northern Ireland, Karol in Wales, Liao in South West England, Leticia in London and Henrique in the North of England.

In the meantime, you can catch up on some of their adventures through the English is GREAT : Speak to the World Facebook page and Instagram feed.  Watch Karol's video to learn just how much she enjoyed studying English in Wales and read an interview with Guilhereme about his two weeks in Northern Ireland.
