Film English Shortlisted for ESU Award

Posted on October 13, 2014 by kierandonaghy


Film English has been shortlisted for the prestigous English Speaking Union President’s Award which celebrates and encourages the widespread use of technology in the teaching and learning of English. It was initiated in 2003 at the request of the then President of the ESU (1957-2011), HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and the current President, HRH The Princess Royal, continues to support the Award today.

The judges had this to say about Film English:

 “Film English is brilliantly designed and makes excellent use of the opportunities provided by the internet today. Its films are very current and the fact that these can be continuously updated is a useful feature. It is instant, readable and engaging, with highly accessible lesson plans.”

The overall winner will be announced in December, so fingers crossed!
