                                     British Council summer school.

      June 7-18,2013 British Council Russia and Academy of In-service teacher training Russia organized a Summer school based on BC CiSELTt Course for local and regional teacher trainers and EL methodologists. 25 participants from all over Russia were selected and this school was held in Moscow on the basis of Academy.
   It was 10 day intensive course for EL specialists and teacher educators, focusing on developing teacher and teacher trainer skills and competencies .English was the language of instruction and we had wonderful Jane Hoatson from British Council Italy who conducted lots of sessions and professional team of experienced trainers who were with us during the school.
    The overall aim of the school was to rise the awainers of participants in communicative EL methodology, as well as rising our capability to use modern teaching instructions and approaches. This course also included components of teacher training course evaluation and design of a teacher training session.
    The content was designed by the course director and tutors to enable  participants to develop capacity as teachers and teacher trainers in a practical and interactive way.
    The course was really intensive and we had classes since 9 am till 7pm with short lunch break.
All teachers worked in 5 groups and we were grouped and regrouped several times during the day and it helped us to know each other better and felt ourselves as  students. British Council gave us lots of information on WEB resources ,techniques for teachers and students as well. The highlight event of the Course was a Microsession Presentation. Each group was given some theme to develop for presentation. It was a real challenge! For all of us it was an unforgettable experience!

At the end of the course we created some rules for a good teacher trainer:
Make your session effective;
Impress the audience with your creativity
Challenges are great! Enjoy them.
Remember: Help is always at hand
Organize your time;
Share responsibilities;
Speak confidently;
Share you ideas;
Implement the knowledge during the course;
Never forget to be patient, positive and tolerant.

      British Council gave us a lot of opportunities to get knew knowledge, to meet new friends all over Russia, to share our experience and to be involved in the World culture, visiting Pushkin Art Gallery (Pre-Raphaelites’ exhibition),participating in Reading ceremony(British writers presentation) and having fun at the Beatles Party.
       In conclusion I should say that every teacher can use  British Council online recourses for teaching English and for further development in teaching as a profession.               -professional development            -teaching  adults

                                     English summer camp in Nakhodka. 
In 24-th of June English summer camp opened its doors for children of all around Nakhodka for the third time. For me it was the first experience and it was amazing! It is difficult to describe all my feelings in some sentences because CAMP – it is a small life, it’s a style of life and it is checking every person how he can work in team and individually. Here you can clearly understand not only other people but firstly yourself. For me all those 10 days passed very fast but they were full, rich and fascinating. From the early morning and till the midday all of us were very busy: some lessons in the morning such as computer class, country study, la-la-la room and holidays, then after dinner everybody were getting ready for the concert or competition and a big show at the end of the day. Each day in the camp had its own theme: sport, carnival, president day, dance battle, etc. And of course it was very interesting for each student to live a small life as a president or sportsmen during only for one day. We also had a camp website, so our students and their parents could follow for the camp life. I really liked my group of 19 girls and boys with a lot of humor. Everyone of them was clever, intelligent, bright. And of course I can not help saying about our English language fellow Rob Danin and Fulbright teacher Kathleen Keefe. It was a great and good opportunity to improve our English and we knew a lot of new information about USA, especially about Colorado (Rob Danin is from this state). And I want to tell special thanks to coordinator of this camp Ishchenko Tatyana Viktorivna who organized our time very brilliant. On a par with studying she organized two interesting tours: excursion to the Paleo Village and tour around Nakhodka. I am sure that experience we collected during the weeks in the ESC-2013 will stay in our minds for a lifetime. I liked very much that I could take part in such event. I would never forget these days!

Pan-Asian Conference
Language Teaching and Learning (PAC) 2012
and 9th FEELTA International Conference

“Learning Languages – Building Communities”
The Far Eastern English Language Teachers’ Association invites proposals for their conference on language teaching and learning to be held November 1-4 (Thursday – Sunday), 2012 at Far Eastern Federal University, Vladivostok, Russia
Hosted by: The Far Eastern Federal University
Deadline for the receipt of proposals: May 31, 2012

About the Conference Theme

Our conference theme highlights the role of language learning in building communities. Whereas the learning of the mother tongue enhances solidarity with speakers of that language, a foreign language allows us to build communities which transcend national and cultural boundaries: we are liberated from communities which we belong to by accident of birth and free to form communities with people from around the world.
Recent language teaching philosophy has focused on the “community of learners”. This concept directs our attention to the fact those studying a language very often learn from each other, benefit from having near-peer role-models and develop both as language learners and as people thanks to the solidarity they feel with other learners.
And, we must not forget that we, language teachers constitute a community. Whether we see this as a “community of practice,” sharing certain approaches and ideas, or as “one happy family of language teachers” will probably depend on whether we are sitting in a conference session or relaxing at one of the social activities planned by the conference committee.
