How Real English works

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.
