A great tool to help your students practice English Every Day!
English Every Day enables you to follow your students’ progress throughout the year whatever the course of events. At school or at home, they will be able to practice English thanks to our new app which includes Game Zone games and so much more.
Start the school year with a level test
Level tests will be available on the app from September.
These tests will highlight your students’ strengths and weaknesses right from the start of the school year to help you tailor your lessons.
Learn a new word every day
Your students can play the One Day One Word game every day and listen to the word or phrase of the day.
They must guess or transcribe what they hear: they get three chances to give the correct answer as fast as they can. They’ll love earning badges and working their way to the top of the rankings!
Mock contests all year long
Mock contests will be made available all year long.
Your students will be able to take up the challenge at school or at home: it’s the perfect tool to keep them motivated and engaged during the school year, whatever the circumstances.
And lots of fun games
Your students will also have access to all the Game Zone games.
These games which cover a wide range of English learning skills are especially created by teachers to allow your students to make progress in a fun way.
With games this entertaining, practising English will never feel like work. Students’ will love progressing in the games and competing with their friends in the rankings. The games are beneficial to all students, not just the best. Kids can set their own pace, spending extra time on challenging topics.

What they say
THE BIG CHALLENGE was first held in France on 18 May 1999 in some schools on the initiative of a group of English teachers. Because of the huge success and the organisational requirements involved, these teachers in France finally formed a team which is exclusively responsible for the organisation and implementation of the competition.
Today, 630,000 students take part in our competition every year throughout Europe. The Big Challenge currently exists in 9 countries: France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy. There are over 16.000 students taking part in the states of Benelux.
As we do not receive any subsidies from third parties, we finance the competition solely through the participation fee.
However, we do receive non-material support from various sides. In 2014 we were awarded the European Language Label by the EU. This award is aimed at outstanding projects in the field of teaching and learning foreign languages.
In addition we are represented on education servers and websites of various ministries.
We also work with different partners from the education sector every year, such as Cambridge English Assessment, Langenscheidt, EF Education First, TOEFL, etc.
The Big Challenge is a great motivation tool. The participating students show considerable progress in English and also additional commitment to prove that they are capable of achieving a good ranking in the competition.
Your students can practice all year with educational games on our free interactive learning platform, the Game Zone, and have one thing above all else: FUN!
More than 16,000 students take part every year in the states of Benelux and 630,000 in Europe.

THE BIG CHALLENGE is intended for students in secondary schools between the ages of 10 and 17 who are learning English. The participation fee per student is 5.00 €. Please follow this link for more information on how this amount is used.
The competition is NOT only meant for high-performing students. Our goal at The Big Challenge is to motivate all of your students to learn English. Registering only your best students to show off their talents misses the point. Registering everyone, whatever their level, might just create the momentum that will push some of them to make that extra effort and discover that English isn’t that difficult, that they too can improve and succeed.
Your students can even practice all year with educational games on our free interactive learning platform, the Game Zone, that lets all students learn at their own pace.
Students with special needs are invited to take part as well. We are more than happy to work with education specialists to adapt the contest to the special needs of students. In fact, The Big Challenge is often an opportunity for these students to show new facets of their talents. Do not hesitate to contact us.
Unfortunately native and English speaking students can't take part in the competition since the goal of the contest is to motivate students to learn a language that isn't their own. Many students work hard and spend hours practising in order to improve their chances of winning. For more information click here.
