Jornadas ELE junto al Báltico

Following the success of the teacher training days organized last year in Tallin, Estonia by the Hispaania Maja school, the event is to be held again this year on the 2nd and 3rd of April.

The aim of the event is, in the words of the organisers, “to acquire new energy and ideas for the daily challenge of meeting students in the classroom.”

The teachers at last year’s conference came from many different countries including Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Belgium and of course Spain. This year there will be a wide variety of subjects including teaching vocabulary, developing students’ autonomy and the use of digital resources. The programme for 2016 is as follows:
