Challenge yourself with our exciting Time to Shine Projects

For General English’s Time to Shine, students will take part in a series of creative and challenging projects each week to utilise language learning and develop a range of 21st century skills. Each project enables students to give presentations based on their own research and participate in fun and collaborative class competitions.

This form of project-based learning enables students to develop their English language skills in a practical way, as well as build critical thinking, research and presentation skills.

Feedback is an important part of any learning journey.  During lessons, students will receive continuous feedback from the teachers to support their progress.  At the end of the course, all students will receive a personal report written by their teacher, accompanied by a course certificate.  This is fantastic to share with your child’s year-round school to further support their development.
