Learning a new language has long been recognized as an important part of any education. For learners of any age, it can boost cognitive function, creative thinking, memory and problem solving skills, as well as helping learners understand and appreciate different cultures.
As our world grows more connected, English language skills have become more valuable than ever, opening up a world of possibilities in education, careers, culture, travel and beyond. To support educators and learners of all ages in bringing English learning to life, Kahoot! Academy is teaming up with global publishers DK to launch a brand-new collection of kahoots where students and adults can practice their skills in both English (UK) and English (US).
DK is a global publishing company that offers books for all ages in over 60 languages. The kahoots in this collection, available to play for free now on Kahoot! Academy, also support DK’s popular English for Everyone and English for Everyone Junior courses. Designed for adults and kids learning English, these courses help participants strengthen their skills in all core areas of language learning. Now, educators, parents and learners can add even more fun to English practice with Kahoot!
