Attention all Travelers, Armchair Adventurers, and Trivia Enthusiasts:

Mark your calendar for the most unique, globally hip trivia event in the South. Back by popular demand, English for Life Academy is inviting YOU to participate in this richly entertaining, internationally themed, trivia event.

English for Life Academy is inviting individuals and community/corporate teams to participate in this richly entertaining, internationally themed trivia night. We’ll take a virtual journey around the world, challenging contestants to recall trivia “factoids” from nearly every culture and continent on the globe.  Enjoy the unscripted wit, team humor, and community spirit inspired by such challenging questions as…

“In West Africa, what is the biggest source of protein?”

“If you celebrate your birthday in Korea, what special birthday food will you likely eat for breakfast?”

So grab a team and join the fun on “International Trivia Night.” Great prizes will be awarded to every participant.

When: March 2016, date coming soon!

Where:  Bavarian Pretzel Factory

Price: Free.  No need to register.  See you there!

And if you’re inspired, register your team to be one of our scholarship sponsors for our 2014 TESOL Scholarship Fund.  Our past scholarship recipients have said, “This was the most important thing I’ve ever done in my life for my career.  Thank you.” They’ve gotten new jobs and promotions, started programs to give back to their own communities, and become leaders at their own schools.  Watch a short video with one of our 2013 Scholarship recipients, Amparo, and see how she plans to use her new certificate.

Help us to keep this opportunity open for more students this summer.  Commit your team to be a scholarship sponsor at the $25, $50, or $100 level and receive a special prize at the event.  You can register here or donate at the door.
