November 2016 update:
In support of the British Council’s International Education Week 14 – 18 November 2016, Speak to the Future and our partners, Vocab Express and Oxford University Press are calling new competitors to join the 1000 Words Challenge.
We are delighted that more and more people from all over the world are signing up to the 1000 Words Challenge. It is two and half years since we launched the Challenge and the enthusiasm to learn a new language (or two or three!) is growing ever stronger. This is a very positive sign for the future, showing that people of all ages are keen to connect with one another through learning each other’s languages.
A new survey from the British Council finds that 67 per cent of people believe that currently the UK doesn’t encourage enough young people to learn languages. Well, let’s reverse that trend! What’s stopping you, whatever your age, from enjoying the experience of learning a new language? There is no better way of building your confidence than working towards the 1000 words target and discovering that you can actually hold a conversation!
Choose from French, German, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese and Arabic! You can open a new account for free by clicking here:
