Encuentro ELE AIL Madrid

This year, AIL Madrid, in collaboration with Edinumen, is celebrating the 8th Conference for Teachers of Spanish as a Foreign Language on two different dates: 2nd to 6th July and 30th July to 3rd August.

According to the organisers, it will be a particularly practical event in which teachers of ELE from all over the world, with a little or a lot of experience, and from different areas of the world of education, will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and knowledge in different workshops. They will be given the tools necessary to create changes in their teaching and to enable students to achieve their learning objectives.

The topics for the workshops answer many of the needs we, as teachers, have felt at one time or another: activating classes with Nearpod; resources for obtaining the best results with teenagers; thinking about interculturality and many other topics, plus observation of real classes. Without a doubt this will be a great way to enjoy the company of other colleagues and to prepare classes for the coming year.

The complete programme is as follows:
