A four-part teacher training workshop
As teachers we continue to get the most growth and richest development when we are active members of a community of practice with other teachers, in which we can share ideas, tips, and strategies, as well as discuss some of the teaching challenges we face. In this four-part workshop, ‘Bridges’, we will further our learning work together with sessions on idioms, games, reaching different learning styles, and task-based instruction. The bridges we will build in these sessions between our shared knowledge and experiences will provide firm foundations for our students to traverse on their journeys towards ever greater English language communicative fluency.
Session 3: Task-Based Learning
In our last workshop of the year we’ll explore the criteria, goals, and structure of Task-Based Learning (TBL). In keeping with our experiential-learning approach—as well as the festive season—we will ourselves complete a holiday-oriented group task, and reflect on the ways in which it could best help our students facilitate their creativity, collaboration, and language use and development.

У травні цього року відзначали 200-ту річницю з дня народження американського поета Волта Вітмена. Художники і художниці студії Aza Nizi Maza звернулись до Вітмена навесні, аби привітати його з днем народження. У віршах Вітмен писав, що кінець кінцем готовий відмовитися від усього, крім розмаїття своїх облич. Саме вони — багатогранні характери Вітмена — стали темою виставки.
Even if you're not a fan of crime novels, we hope you'll be a fan of this week's speaking club. We're talking about everything Crime, from crime games, to funny crimes, to how we treat crime today versus centuries ago.
