Wider World Competition


Wider World is a completely new course specially designed so lower secondary students can access the wider world of knowledge, skills and experience.  Modern, interactive and full of authentic, relevant materials, we’re sure that you and your students will love using it to learn about and explore contemporary English language and culture. To celebrate its arrival here in Ukraine, we are really going to bring the wider world to wherever you are.
