SGI Students on the BBC Learning English

"Time to go! But what can you say instead of let's go? Helen from BBC is here to help with some useful phrases to help Sophia"

Students from SGI were recently featured on the BBC’s prestigious Learning English programme.

BBC Learning English has been inspiring language learning since 1943. Saint George International have been teaching English in London for over 50 years, so a partnership between the BBC and SGI was a perfect match.

Other Ways To Say ‘Let’s Go!’

Sophia Robertson from Russia was featured in an educational video discussing different ways to say ‘let’s go’ when wishing to leave somewhere.

BBC Learning English expert Helen provided a number of different alternative phrases to use, as well as what to say when you’re leaving somewhere by yourself.

The lesson was filmed and is available on the BBC site here

Once you’ve watched the video, the BBC has created a short follow-up quiz to test your language skills and see what you’ve learnt.
