Winner of Silver Award at the World Media Festival 2003 and short-listed for the British Council ELT Innovations Award 2003

Pop Goes English invites children to sing, dance and learn English with music. Music has global appeal and provides an enjoyable and motivating medium for learning English, especially for those at the beginner level. The learning books are based around the Cambridge ESOL Young Learners (starters) syllabus and provide a fun introduction to English for complete beginners, or extra practice for children with some knowledge of English.

The videos, enhanced audio CDs, and games add to the learning experience and encourage language production.

Created in collaboration with 19 Entertainment - the entertainment company behind such global successes as the Spice Girls and Pop Idol.
