INTERNATIONAL students at one of the city’s oldest English Language Schools has set up a film club to record 60-second video bites – to enter a national competition ‘on what English means to me’ – as part of English UK’s Speak to the World campaign.

French and Italian students at the Suzanne Sparrow Plymouth Language School are looking to submit 5 films on what its like studying in Plymouth, and the best film could win a GoPro camera.

34-year-old English teacher, David Rawlings, said: “We have many budding film makers at the school and we decided to set up a film club to encourage creativity, team effort, and inspire our students to make motivational videos on their phones – on what they love about Plymouth and learning English.”

“The videos have to be one-minute long, filmed by and featuring our students, be in English, and ending with the phrase ‘English is GREAT’ and would be marvellous if one of our entries at the School wins.”

English UK are organising the video campaign, and the most inspirational videos will appear on a website being created for the competition.

The Suzanne Sparrow Plymouth Language School was set up in 1978, and one of the oldest in Plymouth that delivers English Language courses to students from across the globe.

The deadline for videos to English UK is the 31 October, 2015, and anyone looking for more information can contact: speaktotheworld@englishuk.com
