Win an EF trip to Paris and meet Taylor Swift
ZURICH, 31 January 2011 — On Valentine’s Day, four-time GRAMMY Award winner Taylor Swift and EF International Language Centers will give three student fans a unique Valentine’s gift: a trip for two to Paris, including a meeting in person with Taylor Swift and an evening enjoying her concert.
“We asked our EF students in a survey who their favorite singer is and one of their biggest idols is Taylor Swift”, says Mats Ulenius, Marketing Director at EF. “Taylor Swift is a fantastic role model for young people - just look at all she has accomplished by the age of 20. She often writes about love and romance in her lyrics, so a Valentine’s competition seemed like a great fit. Taylor is really looking forward to meeting her fans from around the World!”
To enter the competition, participants fill in a mini quiz about Taylor Swift’s song lyrics and Parisian culture at www.ef.com/TaylorSwift. On Valentine’s Day, 14 February, EF will draw three lucky winners who can start packing for Paris and invite a friend of their choice. The winners’ trip takes place one month later to coincide with Taylor Swift’s concert on the 17th of March.
There are also 100 other Taylor Swift prizes to win including signed copies of her latest album, “Speak Now”.
The multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter from Nashville is currently touring 18 countries with her third studio album, “Speak Now”, including singles “Mine” and the just released “Back to December”. On March 17 she will play in Paris at le Zénith, the famous music venue. The club is easy to reach by métro from the EF International Language Center in the heart of Paris.
The EF Centers in Paris and Nice are open year-round and students can start their French studies any Monday of the year. EF also offers summer courses for teenagers in St Raphaël on the French Riviera.
