25 years of Project Meet Tom... “This year Project celebrates its 25th anniversary. It’s been an amazing journey. Over the years I met thousands of teachers and students in many different countries, including Poland, Slovakia, Spain, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, and Argentina. And some of the students grew up to be teachers themselves and also use Project! I’ve always had overwhelmingly positive and encouraging feedback about the books, and the thing I’ve heard most often is that teachers and students love Project. Thank you all for inspiring me to take Project to its current, third edition. I wish you every success with your teaching, and I hope Project will help you and your students for many years to come.”

“I originally wrote Project to get learners both to use language and to enjoy the process of learning. The third edition contains additional vocabulary work and revision in every unit, expanded culture sections and a more specific focus on CLIL. The continuing popularity of Project is living proof that the original concept of a stimulating and interesting approach to learning really does work!” Tom Hutchinson, author of Project

Project

Teachers and students all over the world love what Tom has given them with Project. Here’s what teachers say about it!

My Project story When I started to teach English 15 years ago, we started with Project. Children loved its comics, “ pictures, its projects. They made a lot of posters, our classroom was always full of their work. During the years I’ve met a lot of course books, but I still use Project. Why? It was able to renew itself – as life goes by, books have to follow the changes, too – but its spirit, its message, its humour remain as close to the children as it was 15 years ago. Medvéné Kovács Ágnes, Hungary

My Project story This book combines the best of contemporary and traditional approaches to language teaching. “ ” Julia Remelska, Poland

My Project story The third book includes very “ interesting stories and my students love the comics, without even realising how much everyday English is being learnt.
