English-language learners from across the globe submitted more than 850 projects for the 2015 TOEFL® Young Students Series GO English! project, “Your Culture. In Your Words.” The program inspires students to practice and improve their English-language skills in the classroom under the guidance of their English-language teachers.

Working together as a class over the course of a few months, students used their English-language skills to create a video, radio, poster or newspaper announcement. This year, more than 6,000 students from 27 countries used English to share the celebrations, legends, landmarks or traditions unique to their culture.

To celebrate and admire the work of students and teachers for their commitment to English language learning, TOEFL Young Students Series GO English! week will be held May 23–June 13, 2016. Schools from across the globe that participated in the 2015 campaign will be formally invited to attend ceremonies in their towns designated to appreciate and admire the students and teachers for their hard work and commitment to English language learning. Various rewards will be handed out to schools, teachers and students.
