Spicing up your personal profile!

Over the past few days the School Network has been growing very fast and, as a student, you are now deciding the appearance of your personal page, choosing a photo, writing your personal profile and starting to communicate with your friends.

It is interesting to see how motivated and enthusiastic we all are. The Network is giving us another opportunity to use the language for real purposes and develop our spontaneous communication skills.

In the next weeks we will be analyzing different strategies to spice up our personal profiles.

One of the websites we will work on is "Comiqs" because it will let us turn photos into a sort of comic strip.

The idea is to create a comic strip with a funny introduction of yourself. In order to do this, you will have to choose some characters that will introduce you by telling us about your likes/dislikes, hobbies, any special skill, personal goals, topics you like talking about, etc.

Ready to accept this new challenge?


Welcome Back!

All courses are starting this week. We wish all students, teachers, parents and staff the best of luck on the beginning of the new academic year.

Challenge Education goes ONLINE!
Challenge Language School has a new place to interact. We have opened a social network on Ning, providing a place for members to share "ideas", debate, talk about themselves, show pictures and videos, participate in different interactive projects and enjoy learning English.

We hope everyone has an enjoyable and meaningful learning experience.
...working together to build community.


Learning new Vocabulary

Learning new vocabulary is always a great challenge for foreign language students that need a wide array of target language words to be able to communicate successfully.

Today, I want to show you a website that will help you expand your vocabulary knowledge.
Visuwords is one of my favourite web-based tools.

* It is is an online graphical dictionary that shows the relationships between words.
* It is a powerful tool that allows you to increase and enrich your vocabulary.
* It is a dictionary and a thesaurus!

How it works.
Type a word into the search space and see how the word is connected to other words!

Experience the site by yourself and tell us you opinion.
