English to go


On 12 November 2002 we are hosting the World's Largest Lesson! It is our attempt to get as many teachers from around the globe teaching the same English-To-Go Instant Lesson(tm) within a 24-hour period.

There are two record attempts. We are trying to break last year's World's Largest Lesson record and we are also trying to set a new Guinness World Record for the Largest Simultaneous Lesson! By registering your intent to participate you automatically become part of our attempt to break the English-To-Go record; however you must be able to teach the lesson at a specific time in your country to be eligible for the Guinness Record.

It is FREE to participate, so tell your fellow teachers, friends and students! We want to make this year's event bigger and better than the last! There are great prizes to be won, too.

We invite you to participate in the event. Click below for more information and to register.
