Ready to hone your English language skills for work? As the world grows more connected than ever, English has become one of the key skills to level up your career opportunities and professional success. However, it can be challenging to fit language learning into a busy professional’s day, as well as to find learning resources that are both effective and engaging.
Kahoot! is dedicated to empowering everyone to reach their learning potential, which is why we have teamed up with the English language experts at Cambridge Assessment English to offer a series of kahoots that help adult learners build confidence in their English skills.
With these kahoots, you can practice your English and other core professional skills with interactive language learning games that break down content into bite-sized chunks. Listen to real-life workplace conversations, and learn practical words and phrases that you can use right away with your coworkers and clients.
“It’s exciting to take this next step in our partnership with Cambridge English,” said Craig Narveson, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Kahoot!. “Soft skills have never been more important, and it’s great to see these included within the English language kahoots—offering a fun and engaging way for adult learners to see how they’re doing with both their English and other core skills for work.”
The first of these kahoots can be played right here on Kahoot! Academy, with collections of additional kahoots available exclusively on the Cambridge English kahoots for work website. The kahoots are designed for a variety of work settings, helping professionals of all kinds reinforce their language learning through memorable and fun experiences.
“We’ve developed these games so they’re a fun way of learning relevant English skills for the workplace. It’s great that there is so much choice nowadays in what we learn and how we learn, but it can be really hard to find high-quality, enjoyable resources which fit in with busy lifestyles,” said Belinda Cerdá, Head of Digital Partnerships at Cambridge Assessment English.
