Kaplan Underwater English: An April Fool’s Day Joke

Share Article

Kaplan Underwater English, the revolutionary new way to learn languages, has been revealed as an April Fool's Day prank by Kaplan International English.

Kaplan International English can confirm that its newest English language learning program, Kaplan Underwater English is an April Fool’s Day hoax.

While Kaplan International English is dedicated to staying at the forefront of the ESL industry with its blended learning K+ teaching methodology, the invention of underwater teaching facilities is ultimately a step too far for now.

The filming for the underwater section took place at Kaplan’s school in Torquay with the help of staff and students. The project was completed within two weeks.

Many thanks to the following bloggers and ESL teachers for helping us share the news:
