The Complete English Experience

It is important that when students are selected to participate in the BEO World Championship they are not only given the support they need to achieve their best but also have the opportunity to fully explore British culture and heritage whilst they are in the UK.

Skills Workshops

The BEO Skills Workshops offer the opportunity to rehearse some of the skills required during the competition such as making presentations, public speaking and time management.

Culture Workshops

The BEO Culture Workshops focus on the places that the students will visit during their excursions as well as key aspects of British culture and society.
