Why?
Students are tired of an approach where English is not perceived as a tool and is only a subject. That is why we believe that PBL (project-based learning), is an approach that motivates learning, pushes boundaries, makes students independent and changes how we look at the learning process. Знаю!Day is the first step towards a big goal, where we want to change the industry. You, the students of the school, will only benefit from it.
