They call French the language of love, which feels rather fitting as we begin our Valentine’s Day celebrations today. The ability to speak another language, French or otherwise, is certainly an attractive quality, but one that can be few and far between in the UK. Here at Vocab Express, we are on a mission to change that and are setting all secondary school students and adults the challenge of learning 1000 words in a different language with our 1000 Words Challenge.
A thousand words!? It sounds a little crazy, we agree. So to help you out, the team at Vocab Express has joined forces with dictionary publisher Oxford University Press to provide a free online platform where you can practice, revise and test your knowledge, as part of the Speak to the Future campaign. With Vocab Express at your fingertips, there is no reason why you can’t become a language whizz in no time.
With the chance to learn French, Spanish and German, and more languages to come, you’re guaranteed to impress with your new language prowess. And if that isn’t incentive enough, those who successfully reach 1000 words will be given a certificate to reward their amazing achievement, as well as the chance to win a number of other goodies!
Up for the challenge? Want to know more? Pop by our stand E86 at the Education Show (20-22 March, NEC, Birmingham) and see for yourself what it’s all about. We will also be showcasing some of the exciting additions to the new version of Vocab Express, including the ability for teachers to upload custom lists of vocabulary, a dictation mode to make the most of the 50,000+ audio files and a new Android mobile app allowing students to learn and test their vocabulary knowledge on-the-move, with all results linked back to their real-time school scoreboards.
We look forward to seeing you at the Education Show 2014 in March! In the meantime, step up to the challenge and register today at: https://www.vocabexpress.com/speaktothefuture/
