Nicosia, 9th April 2014

Limassol, 10th April 2014 

Cambridge University Press and Cambridge English Language Assessment, are pleased to invite you to two professional training days in Nicosia and Limassol, on 9th and 10th April 2014. 

Speakers

Peter Lucantoni

Peter has been teaching, teacher training and writing teaching and learning materials for over 30 years, and has an MA in TESOL from the University of Edinburgh. He is the author and co-author of several popular coursebooks for students, including IGCSE English as a Second Language, and regularly speaks at international conferences as well as training teachers worldwide. Peter is a course tutor for Cambridge CELTYL, CELTA & DELTA, and an assessor for Cambridge CELTYL.

This workshop looks at the important skill of thinking and in particular problem-solving and decision making, which are essential skills for children to acquire if they are to become successful. Teachers will have the opportunity to try out some activities which engage students and encourage them to develop their thinking skills, while at the same time using English in a meaningful and purposeful way.

This activity-based workshop includes practical interactive tasks and discussion designed to help teachers integrate Reading and Listening exam practice for PET for schools into their pre-intermediate classes. It offers a brief overview of the papers, examines specific parts of each paper, and explores ways in which the tasks and testing focuses can be integrated with other skills practice. 

Julia Kallinikou

Stretching back to 1978, Julia’s TEFL experience has involved working with all ages and levels of students; curriculum design and management; examining for a range of internationally renowned qualifications; training and monitoring speaking examiners; and presenting professional development seminars and workshops. These activities continue to provide an ongoing challenge and immense satisfaction in that they demand critical reflection and constant modification.

Julia’s recent post-graduate studies in Education and Applied Linguistics (OU) enabled her to redress the balance of theory and practice at an advanced stage of her career, offering other dimensions and further enlivening interaction with colleagues and students.
