TOEFL® Young Students Series GO English! Project

Using your English skills, work as a class to tell us what you would add in a time capsule

Imagine if you could give someone in the future a peek at what life is like today. What would you say to them? Tell us what items are important to you at this moment that you would include in your time capsule and why. It could include items such as your favorite game, book, sport, school celebration, food or school subject. We invite you to work as a class to tell us what you would add in a time capsule. And practice your English skills while creating a video, radio, poster or newspaper announcement.

We are also committed to promoting learning that engages students on multiple levels.

With your guidance, students will be inspired to practice and improve their English-language skills, use their imagination and take pride in creating an amazing project.
