K*ss and Tell

Imagine the scene, a room full of experienced English trainers admitting to each other that they sometimes have prob.., sorry, challenges in the classroom.
This was the latest Knowledge Share Session on Saturday November 18th, and once again the format proved it's worth. The difference this time was that the knowledge was brought to the workshop in the heads of the participants, and everyone contributed under the guidance of Julia H. who facilitated the workshop. Well done to everyone involved, let's have more of this! Posted by Picasa

Mario Magic?

You can love him or hate him but you can't ignore him! Organised together with Provadis and with lunch sponsored by Cambridge, Mario Rinvolucri gave an entertaining workshop on "The Silent Way" of teaching grammar and techniques to get students laughing.
It is easy to see why Mario is such a popular presenter - he involves his audience, treats them with respect, encourages discussion and gives you food for thought and lots of useful tips.
Seeing Mario for the first time, I very much enoyed it and took a lot away with me, but more seasoned Mario watchers saw little new in today's workshop. I'll leave the final verdict to Barbara who is doing a write up for the NewsletterPosted by Picasa
