IPA Video Project

Your students now have the opportunity to get involved with a project that not only gives them a great reason to use their English, but also to develop their creativity, teamwork and audio-visual skills to create something truly fun that can be enjoyed by the whole world. If you think your students might enjoy making and starring in their own video, then our Video Project Competition could be just what you need to get them to stretch their English and show the world just what heights of creativity they are capable of attaining.
