I heard this from one of our special Agents: "Yey! We're starting a new unit!" #cardboardchallenge brings out the love for learning English!
Our students are so excited about the Project that they have been showing much more interest in our classes! #cardboardchallenge

The Agents of Change project, at Cultura Inglesa Idiomas S/A, encourages young learners to take on the role of detectives of life and Makers. In a student-led investigation, learners observe, identify and analyze real-life challenges in their communities. Throughout this autonomous process, students are invited to, collaboratively, do research on their themes of choice, conduct surveys, share their ideas and present their own solutions to challenges. The whole project is conducted in English, which is taught as a foreign language.
Share Your Creations with the World!
Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This September, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Saturday, October 1st, 2016, a day that commemorates the flash mob that made Caine's day in the short film, communities come together and play!
