Pearson Japan to Launch Unique Quiz about Readers

In conjunction with the launch of the new Pearson English Readers – a freshly rebranded range of graded readers formerly known as Penguin Readers – Pearson Japan has announced a brand new quiz to help teachers explore the wide range of titles and learn more about them.

Teachers can attempt to get the highest score in the fastest possible time, and the person at the top of the leaderboard at the end of September 30th 2015 will win a Pearson English Readers library set of their choice.

Everyone can play the quiz, but to appear in the ranking and therefore become eligible to compete for the prize, teachers must have a Pearson Teachers' Club account and reside in Japan.

Julianne Moore is "The English Teacher"

the-english-teacher.jpg"Julianne Moore is one of Hollywood's finest actresses with a wide range of roles and a host of awards on her CV. Well, to that impressive lineup she can now add English Teacher. She stars in the new movie of the same name that recently had its world premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

The film is about - surprise, surprise - an English teacher (Moore) whose quiet life is disrupted when a former student (Michael Angarano) returns to her small town after failing as a Broadway playwright. Familiar faces among the cast include Greg Kinnear and Nathan Lane.

The critically lauded flick is the big screen debut for prolific TV director Craig Zisk. And with a script that is loaded with humor and references to Shakespeare and Goethe, it is sure to entertain all you literary minded teachers out there.
