The Big Challenge

What is The Big Challenge? The Big Challenge is an English language contest for students between the ages of 11 and 16. It is held every year in May in schools across France, Germany, Austria, Spain and Sweden. In 2013, over 610,000 students with 30,000 teachers from 6,000 schools participated in The Big Challenge. Created in France in 1999 by a group of English teachers, its main purpose is to motivate students learning languages with an educational yet fun experience. At the request of teachers and students alike, we have developed a new internet tool: THE BIG CHALLENGE CLUB. The club enables teachers of French, Spanish, German and English to make contact, develop exchanges, plan projects and communicate with classes all over Europe … it also gives their students the opportunity to find pen pals speaking all these languages. Practice, read the rules and see the prizes on line
