A premiere national campaign promoting the English language for employability
The English Language Week is an initiative led by the British Council and the British embassy in Tunis, in partnership with UTICA (l’Union Tunisienne de l’Industrie du Commerce et de l’Artisanat) and TBCC (Tunisian British Chamber of Commerce).
Six free and exciting events will take place in Tunis, Jendouba, Gafsa, Gabes and Sfax during the week 26 to 31 May. During these events a mix of talks, digital workshops, games and debates will take place.
In addition to the city based events, a nation-wide debate on social media has started to discuss the importance of languages, English in particular, for employability. So join us on Facebook and Twitter.
To spice things further, you can test your linguistic skills by participating in the English Language Week Webquest to win a tablet.
