English Challenge competition at Damascus British Council

(Dp-news)

DAMASCUS- British Council is launching English Challenge competition which is the first competition of its kind in the Arab world on its website.

In a statement that DP-News got a copy, British Council in Damascus announced that English Challenge competition is open to all learners of English and will run from October to December 2011.

Over 155 winners will be selected from 17 countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) to win a range of valuable prizes. Participants will only need to register on the British Council’s Learn English website to take part in the competition, according to the British Council statement.



Through this competition, the British Council aims to help learners of English in the region develop the autonomy they need for improving their language skills outside the classroom. The competition is a way of introducing learners in MENA to the tools and materials they can use to develop their English language skills autonomously and achieve their educational and career aspirations.

Nic Humphries, Director English MENA has given more details about the initiative: “Trying to improve your language skills by yourself is difficult, but there is no reason why learners can’t achieve it with some “serious fun”. The Arabic version of the LearnEnglish website will help learners in this region discover that there is a lot they can learn by themselves and that this can be enjoyable. Autonomous learning is an unfamiliar approach to learning, but one that is going to be increasingly important in the coming decade. It is a challenge – but one we are sure people will meet!”

English for the Future is a programme designed by the British Council in response to the need to support for English language skills development in the emerging labour market in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). It works in partnership with Ministries of Education across the MENA region and is supported by the commercial sector.

The Arabic version of the Learn English website: http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/ar/ was recently launched as part of the British Council’s English for the Future Program to help learners in the MENA region develop their English language skills through a free internet based service.

Competition participants:
Have to be Arab citizens from the MENA region
