A voyage to England's oldest city!

As well as being home to the capital of Roman Britain and Blur frontman Damon Albarn, Colchester is now home to the Language Explorer. Although Tom and Suzy weren't on a hunt for Roman Gold, we hope the children of Colchester will join their quest for treasure on a desert Island.

With the help of JCDceaux we are bringing the Language Explorer to a Bus Stop near you, with over 500 bus stops across the country showing off our worthwhile research project. We want as many children from all across the UK to participate so we can understand how different children use language.

We are now calling all you living or passing through Colchester to look out for one of our 12 bus shelter ads. If you manage to find one on your daily travels, take a selfie and tweet us with the hashtag #languageexplorer. We will then send out a Language Explorer themed pencil case and badge as a bounty for your poster hunt.
