About EnglishGo

In the academic year 2016/2017, Metodicko-pedagogické centrum (MPC) offered the first 2000 teachers in middle schools and high schools materials for teaching the English language. In addition to access to these quality digital teaching materials for both teachers and their students, MPC also offered trainings focused on the latest trends in language teaching as well as attractive benefits in cooperation with the British Council.

In the academic year 2017/2018, MPC is continuing with its activities for English language teachers by offering EnglishGo didactic materials to middle schools, high schools and conservatories.

Schools can get access to EnglishGo materials free of charge, without any time consuming or complicated administrative processes.

EnglishGo includes attractive benefits for teachers, including the most attractive activities evaluated by teachers in the past – visits by a native speaker teacher in their school, demo lessons from experts from the EnglishOne and EnglishGo projects as well as motivating rewards in cooperation with the British Council.

“The most significant benefit of the material is the large volume of authentic audio and video, which allows students of middle and high schools to improve their listening skills and acquire appropriate strategies, such as understanding key ideas, essential information, distinguishing the main idea from side ideas and the like”.
— assoc. prof. PhDr. Jana Bérešová, PhD et PhD – President of the Slovak Association of Teachers of English, a member of an expert team in language teaching and testing within the international project RELANG, supported by the European Commission, and an EnglishGO supervisor.
