Many schools offer workshops and standard English lessons, but very few can offer the integrated experience that we do, through our unique project-based Go Create! English syllabus, taught by dynamic and inspirational teachers.
This exciting programme of themed lessons covers different aspects of popular culture and has been designed to offer students the highest level of experiential learning.
The Go Create! English Syllabus
- The Go Create! English syllabus enables students to produce written and spoken English inspired by the creative arts. This unique programme is designed and updated by English language teachers who have professional backgrounds in the film production, music and web design industries.
- Students learn English through interactive and creative projects. This is an excellent way to encourage students from different countries to communicate in an easy and natural manner. The syllabus helps students improve their overall English language competence, in particular, speaking fluency, with pronunciation integrated into classroom activities.
- Each school day has a tangible outcome allowing students to take samples of their work home and to share them with their parents and friends. These include recordings, videos, posters, podcasts and so much more…
- Dedicated syllabi for Go Create! Primary (7-10), Go Create! (A2 to B2) and Advanced levels, with projects suited to the ability and age of the students.

How We Teach
- English is the only language used in the classroom at all times!
- Throughout the course, Task Based & Project Based Teaching and Learning methodology is used to help students develop their 21st Century skills of Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Intercultural Competence
- Teaching techniques to utilise multimedia and film adaptations of classic novels are used as scaffolding to help students engage with literary texts in a modern era of technology. There is a focus on understanding British Culture through literature as a mirror of society. Students explore alternative uses of written texts developing their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills
- Each day, students work on a variety of tasks, building up to a bigger project at the end of the day to showcase students’ improved language skills and cultural understanding
- Drama teaching techniques used during the lessons are aimed at increasing students’ confidence to help them become better communicators in English
- Teacher guided peer and self-assessment is incorporated into the syllabus, with self-evaluation strategies used throughout the course to measure students’ progress, which raise awareness about the importance of students’ taking control of their own learning
