The American Center in Moscow and the English Language Office are inviting practicing and aspiring English language teachers to English Language Teaching Week on October 21-25, 2019. ELT Week at AMC is a week of daily lectures and workshops from ELT specialists on various aspects of teaching English as a foreign language. The topics covered will include teaching English through video, teaching speaking, teaching academic writing, EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction), and creating an online EL course.
On October 22, you are invited to a special lecture by English Language Specialist, Professor Emeritus Ann Mabbott, Hamline University, on English as a Medium of Instruction.
Dr. Mabbott will discuss what math, science, and social studies need to know about language in order to teach effectively in English when their students are not yet fluent in English.
In 2018 Dr. Mabbott was announced an English Language Specialist by the U.S. Department of State and continues to share her expertise around the globe during her retirement.
Before retiring and being named emeritus in August, Mabbott was an accomplished Professor within Hamline’s School of Education for over two decades. In addition to securing the ELM grant, she was the Director of the Center for Second Language Teaching and Learning from 1996-2009, and was invited to speak nationally and internationally as an expert in how to teach English as a second language.
