Connect, Grow, Thrive

Bern - 7 March - ELT Springboard

We're a friendly discussion and networking group of ETAS members and non-members that meets after work on the first Thursday of every month. There is no charge for the event (just buy a drink at the restaurant) and there are no prerequisites--teachers of all languages and at all experience levels are welcome to come!  

Next month's topic: Meaning and context

Single words are interpreted according to the words around them, and the context in which they are spoken or written. Similarly, learners associate meaning and acquire language with the help of context.

This month at Springboard, we’re sharing practical ways to manage meaning and context when teaching. If you’ve learned about pragmatics or semantics in linguistics, this will be of particular interest to you. But it’s also meant as a basic introduction for teachers with no theoretical knowledge.

Come join us on Thursday, March 7th, at 8pm Come join us at Tibits – Bern, Gurtengasse (about 250 meters from the main station), for lively discussion, networking, and a step forwards in your professional life! Please visit the ELT Springboard blog for more information and to RSVP!
