COME CREATE SPRING CHALLENGE

April 13 – 16, 2020

Come Create Spring Challenge is inspired by the English in Action course that we recently announced and is compacted into a short-term program in English that encourages experiential learning by enabling students to complete their own projects. It is created by our teachers who have a background in media and film-making, music and design. It is designed to improve students’ overall English competencies with focus on speaking and creative writing, at the same time appealing to young people’s sense of creativity and fun.

Students come up with an idea of a product or a cause and learn through implementing interactive and creative workshops. Every day will lead the students closer to a fully completed product or ready to go promotional materials of their choice like posters, recordings, promotional videos, podcasts, or other. Students will work in teams and will chose to produce in one media genre – e.g. news reports, commercials, or media platforms. They will discuss advertising concepts, shoot a commercial, edit videos and think of ways to make it public. 

At the end of the second day they will be given a 48-hour Come Create Challenge. It is important that they take on the challenge with courage and creative thinking to help them use everything around them in the best possible way! With this we will show them that they do not have to plan for hours or be perfectionists in order to create a good final product.
On the last day they will present their projects. 

The entire program is taught in English.
