We are excited to announce a new series of Teacher2Teacher Workshops for English-language teachers from all across Russia. Taught by the English Language Offices English Language Fellow Dr. Adam Mastandrea, these biweekly meetings will be a great opportunity for English teachers to get hands-on advice about various aspects of foreign language instruction, share successful practices, resources, innovative pedagogies, and work on their professional development together with like-minded colleagues.
We invite you to join the first workshop on October 1 at 5 pm (MSK). In this workshop, you will learn about using visual arts and story-telling activities to teach English.
These workshops are free and will take place online via Zoom. They are intended for teachers of English teaching in various educational contexts, as well as teacher-trainers and students pursuing a degree in teaching English.
