leave a comment »

With the participation of more than 1500 colleagues from Naples, Rome, Bologna and Milan, the Autumn 2013 edition of our Italian Cambridge Days, held between the 4th and 8th of November, came to another a successful conclusion.

This year, focusing specifically on the Cambridge English Language Assessment Centenary, the Italian Cambridge Days were another great opportunity for us to communicate directly with teachers and colleagues in the field, receive interesting feedback and share our joy for celebrating 100 years of knowledge, excellence and innovation.

In what proved to be a well-received, rich schedule of professional seminars and presentations, attendees learned moreabout some of the biggest changes that took place during the last 100 years of our history, demonstrating at the same time Italy’s place in that history as well as how the country has taken on the challenge of learning, teaching and testing English as a foreign language.

Further sessions included a seminar by Michael McCarthy on understanding the contribution of corpora to the Advanced level, a workshop on tips and activities for Cambridge Exams, presented by Annette Capel as well as a presentation on Mobile Learning in ELT by Gavin Dudeney. Participants also had the chance to visit an exhibition of promotional materials by our event sponsors, Cambridge English Language Assessment and Cambridge University Press. You can scroll down in this post to have a look at some pictures of the events.

We would like to thank all our Italian colleagues for their continuous support as clearly demonstrated by the success of these Italian Cambridge Days. We look forward to seeing you again in one of our future events for teachers.
