Cambridge Day

For those English teachers out there...if you are in the Paris area, or even want to travel to Paris for the event, Cambridge Day is September 25 in the 13th arrondissement.  It is an all day event which is free for all teachers. 

There are 4 different sessions of workshops, as well as an opening and closing speakers, lunch, and coffee breaks during which you can explore some of the most recent Cambridge titles, as well as some of their most popular titles, including the option to buy them from Attica bookshop (who will have a stand there).  Also (and very interesting in my opinion), all online registrations receive a free copy of the 25th edition of English Grammar in Use (one of my favorite English grammar books) and all attendees recieve a copy of English Unlimited.

Workshops include:
  • The impact of the recession on business English
  • Blended learning - innovation in English language teaching from Cambridge
  • Teaching effective communication in the modern world
  • Assessing all 4 skills with BULATS
  • Doing business wiht a spoken corpus: grammar in action
  • The technical English toolbox - equipping engineers with the language they need most
  • Unlimited technology to teach - and learn
  • Designing a programme of financial English, based on needs - and means - analysis
  • Collaboration in ESP and Business English course design and delivery: ideas, models and experiences
The opening plenary is "Fluency and the Common European Framework" and the closing plenary is "Teaching - and Learning - Grammar Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
