ETAS Online Teacher Talking Time

Believe it or not – we’ve set up a place where TTT (teacher talking time) is encouraged and appreciated!

Please join us for our monthly ETAS online TTT sessions launched online in April 2020 during lockdown.  Our online TTT sessions are where teachers can meet to talk, share and enjoy each other’s company. We look forward to welcoming teachers throughout Switzerland so, together, we can create a unique chance to connect with others from different regions of the country.

"No Word Is an Island: the importance of word partnerships"

Thursday 10 June, 16:00-17:30

No man is an island, and neither are words. Just like us, they form partnerships and relation­ships with other words, working together to form something all the more substantial and use­ful. In this practical session, presenter and teacher-trainer Alex Warren will use examples from National Geographic Learning titles to explore and demonstrate how focusing on word-partnerships can help speed up vocabulary learning and develop greater language awareness.

As an in-house teacher trainer for National Geographic Learning ELT in Bournemouth, Alex Warren enjoys developing teachers on an international scale. He has worn many hats over the years, including journalist, teacher, school manager, and consultant for ELT materials.
