Real English

Project-Based Learning using Cambridge Framework for life competencies
Kaplan Project Based Learning

Get your English ready for the real world

Rapid progress is often easier when you start learning a language, but many students struggle with taking their Intermediate knowledge to the next level and applying their language skills outside of the classroom. That’s why we have developed Real English to help you break out into the real world and start fully using your second language.


Activate your existing English grammar and vocabulary that you have built up in the classroom

Thriving Student Community

Be given projects that encourage and allow you to apply your English language knowledge towards engaging tasks as part of a group

Expand Your Opportunities

Create materials using skills and software packages that are used in the real world and present these to the rest of the school

Tailored Courses For Groups

Push past that tricky intermediate stage with confidence and mastery over the language and then apply your skills outside of the classroom

How Real English works

The Cambridge Framework for Life Competencies

Alongside language development, the Real English curriculum is based around six core competencies that Cambridge English identifies as critical life skills. Each week you’ll begin a new project that helps develop a range of the six core competencies.

These are: Creative Thinking, Critical Thinking, Learning to Learn, Communication, Collaboration, Social Responsibilities

All of these core competencies are addressed and developed naturally through the group projects you will be set each week.

Projects Using the Cambridge Framework For Life Competencies

Research shows it’s difficult to become fluent in a language if it isn’t relevant to your daily goals, so Real English throws you into a team and tasks you all with using English to collaborate on engaging, exciting tasks. These projects could get you to:

Make a short film

Decide on a genre and then form a crew to write a script, cast, shoot and edit the film, all in English

Create a school newspaper

Interview teachers and fellow students before writing up your stories and editing them together into a complete paper

Produce a city guide

Learn more about your city and focus on producing information that a newcomer might need and compiling it into a handy guide
