Learning English Video Project Started in Cambridge!

Posted 4th September 2008 by Daniel Emmerson

Yesterday was the first day of production on The Learning English Video Project! 

Cambridge is a beautiful English university town with lush green countryside and beautiful college architecture. I arrived here yesterday after a two and a half hour bus journey from London, which is far too long. The bus broke down on the way to the city and I spent forty minutes in a midst of noise and traffic waiting to get started with the film project.

Thankfully, my trusty film crew were ready to start when I finally arrived and we met with Yuan Zhang, the publicity officer for the University of Cambridge International Students Union to discuss their involvement in the project. Our travels then took us to MichaelHouse, a Church/Cafe in the heart of the city that arranges an annual programme for German monks who are looking to improve their English and work in Cambridge for twelve months. Plenty of the MichaelHouse team are eager to get involved in the project and we look forward to spending the day with them today!For more information on MichaelHouse, please visit: http://www.michaelhouse.org.uk/

I will try and keep the blog updated everyday to let you know how the project is developing! A series of photographs and perhaps even some footage of the trip will be available to look at from Wednesday, September 10th!

The Schedule

We will be in Cambridge for the next six days when we leave for London on September 8th.

  • From the 11th - 18th September we will be in NEW YORK, U.S.A
  • 23rd September - 1st October - MADRID, Spain
  • 13th - 20th October - CASABLANCA, Morocco
  • 26th October - 2nd November - MINSK, Belarus

If you are an ESL student interested in the project, or even if you are from one of the cities we are visiting and wish to meet with us on our journey, please feel free to contact us - film@englishclub.com.

Its got to be fun!

Daniel

    Hello Daniel,
    your project seems to be very interesting, especialy that it is going to be illustrated by experinces from whithin different cultures.You know, I am a graduate in English Language and Litterature since 1998. unfortunately, I do not use Engilsh in my daily life to be a fluent speaker. But, I am a book-worm to keep a fresh memory of its grammar, and vacabulary.
    I am from Morocco, and I am glad that my country is part of the scheduled places you are visiting, and I wish I could be able to meet you in Casablanca because I am from Tangier city.
    The Best of Luck
