About the 2016–17 TOEFL Young Students Series GO English! Project
Work as a class and use your English skills to describe what friendship means to you.
It's been said that finding a true friend is a priceless treasure. Now we want to know what friendship means to you. So tell us in your own words, what does it mean to be a friend? What activities do you like to do with your friends? We invite you to work as a class and tell us your thoughts on friendship. Be creative. And practice your English skills while creating a video, radio, poster or news announcement.
ETS, the world’s largest nonprofit educational measurement organization, is committed to delivering high-quality assessments — like the TOEFL® Primary™ and TOEFL Junior® tests — as well as conducting world-class research and advancing education worldwide. 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. In addition, your class will receive special rewards for participating — including promotional items, educational materials, a plaque and certificates of achievement — once you turn in your project.
