Where teachers meet and learn

Bern - 25th October - ELT Springboard - Optimize your time!

A great benefit we language teachers have is flexibility. In theory, we have total control over our schedules. But such freedom can be a burden--finding enough paid working hours while leaving enough time for preparation and travel is not easy. And there are many more challenges as well.

Join us at 8:00 pm on the 25th of October in Bern for the next Springboard meeting where we will all discuss how to cope with the issue of time. Visit the ELT Springboard blog for more information and to RSVP. We’ve all got tips to share and we want to hear what you can add!

Lausanne - 11th November 2017 - Using Literature to Teach English

Graham Workman’s seminar will take place on a Saturday morning at the Continental Hotel opposite Lausanne station.  The first half of the seminar will provide four different ways of exploiting poems so they can be used for vocabulary development, creative writing and practice with the rhythm and sounds of English.  The second half will present and practise three ways of getting learners to discuss short stories.  Participants will be provided with copies of short stories to read before the seminar and numerous further resources will be provided on the day.
