Energise your students with The Project Explore Competition!

To celebrate the launch of Project Explore, we’re sharing an extract from one of the course’s new fictional stories: The Ancient Statue. Now it’s up to your students to finish the tale by creating their very own comic strip!

Project Explore combines the tried and trusted Project methodology and structure with 100% new content. The animated stories by award-winning author Paul Shipton offer cumulative revision of grammar and vocabulary throughout the course.

Now it’s over to your students to finish the story of the Ancient Statue! Show them the video and enter The Project Explore Competition today!
