Gallery Teachers is coming to Romania! 
Join our Gallery Teachers team on this teaching methodology workshop to breathe fresh life into traditional method and have the opportunity to speak to our experts!

In the Gallery Teachers Series: Informed Eclecticism

New Tasks building New Perspectives

English Languages Teachers today are supposed to be in the ‘post methods era’ and yet what can realistically replace the Communicative Approach?

This workshop will re-examine the idea and practice of communicative activities and will present a number of completely new and sometimes innovative solutions to help motivate and galvanise your students.

Interspersing hands-on activities for the participants, the presenter will show how research supports the ideas presented.

Be prepared for informative fun!
