What was the competition?
We asked English Language teachers from around the world to help us with our research project by recording conversations and collecting written work from their students. All entrants became our Language Research Ambassadors, who all had the chance to win an iPad mini 2, or our goody bags as runners up.
What is the project?
The project is called the Cambridge Schools Corpus. For this we have collected samples of spoken English from school and university students - both expert speakers of English and ESL (English as a Second Language) students. The aim of this project is to improve our English Language Teaching course books and materials by looking at how English is really used in everyday life. To do this, we have worked with schools and universities from around the world!
