This March saw the most successful Cambridge English seminars in Cyprus to date in Limassol and Nicosia on 13 and 14 March 2012 respectively. Despite what is admittedly one of the busiest times of the academic year, both events were received with a warm welcome by more than 250 participating colleagues from various areas of the island.

The seminars focused mainly on a specific agenda of issues related to the teaching of young learners, aimed at providing guidance on candidate preparation for those levels. Presentations by Peter Lucantoni, a course tutor for Cambridge CELTYL, CELTA & DELTA, and an assessor for Cambridge CELTYL and Bob Obee, Cambridge ESOL’s Professional Support Leader in the region, aimed at demonstrating different techniques and activities for making teaching and learning vocabulary more effective at the primary level.

Attendees were also presented with tips, teaching activities and practical ideas for improved performance in the classroom and were given the opportunity to discuss with the presenters about the importance of acquiring a wide and appropriate lexical range and look at how this can be done both inside and outside the classroom. Each seminar also contained a book exhibition with a wide samples variety of Cambridge University Press teaching and course book material.

We would like to thank all our colleagues in Cyprus for their continuous support as clearly demonstrated by the success of the Limassol and Nicosia Cambridge English seminars. We look forward to seeing you again in one of our future events for teachers in Cyprus.
