Challenge

The Bulgarian education system has proven inadequate in providing engaging and productive tools for English language learning. There are not enough teacher training opportunities and extracurricular activities for all interested students. Additionally, the lack of supplemental materials and educational resources is holding back the development of English language instruction. The problem is countrywide, although most acutely felt in underdevelopment communities.

Solution

Participation in the competition will strengthen the poise and communication skills of more than 4000 students in their use of the English language. Additionally, the program will have a positive impact on building confidence and encouraging students to express themselves. The project will be beneficial for the English language teachers. They will be provided with interactive classroom tools and innovative educational resources that will aid their efforts to motivate their students to learn.

Long-Term Impact

The competition promotes creativity and inspires students to think "outside the box", which has a long-term effect on their personal, academic and career development. The project will have an overall impact on the effectiveness and quality of the English language instruction in Bulgarian schools.
