A few of my favourite things
Nick Bilbrough shares the story of The Hands Up Project and how this award-winning charity has used English language to build connections between children around the world, all via the platforms we are becoming so familiar with. Through opportunities of remote theatre and presentations, learners develop their interpersonal skills in a truly meaningful way. Nick also shared some examples from five years developing in this field and look at ways in which schools may be involved.
