Back 2 school @British
There are few things in life better than writing the first word on a brand new notebook, a bouquet of sharpened pencils and the hustle of the first day of school. One of them is reading. And watching films. And did we mention reading?
Yes, going back to school means your book bags will be once more full, whether you are a student trying to make sense of your new curriculum, a parent wishing to instill the love for reading in their kid or someone who simply wants to learn more English.
Join the @British library between 15 September – 15 October and get your Youth subscription with a 25% discount. This way you will gain access to over 14.000 resources in English that you can enjoy all year round!
Do you ever look at a shelf full of books and can’t decide what read? Should it a funny novel, a mystery one, a graphic novel? The possibilities are both endless and a bit daunting! This is why this autumn we’re coming to your aid! Join us in the most engaging literary challenge out there: the book bingo!
How does it work? It’s easy: we came up with 36 criteria for you to choose from. We challenge you to read a book written the year you were born, the 19th book on a shelf or a book your best friend recommended. How many can you tick off in 3 months? Yes, 36 is a lot (challenge accepted?), but how about 6? So come to our librarybetween 15 September – 15 January and read 6 books that satisfy 6 different criteria and you will join our Book Bingo! There’s one last catch: in order to win, you need to choose 6 criteria that run horizontically, vertically or diagnoally on our competition card. If you succeed, you will be invited to spin the wheel of fortune in the library and win amazing prizes!
