The benefits of MySchoolsNetwork are that pupils can practise their English skills in a different way, and that they learn to think more internationally. They can see how children all over the world see things and this simply broadens their horizon.

I would definitely recommend MySchoolsNetwork to colleagues, because it is a really fun way for pupils to not only practise their English, but also learn about other cultures. There are assignments on the website, especially made for this purpose. For example in the event ‘My favourite shop,’ pupils have to write something themselves, but they can also read about the favourite shop from a person from e.g. Vietnam. These stories will differ immensely and this makes it extra fun for pupils to look beyond what they already know.
