Teachers in the Spotlight

Welcome to the latest edition of CLTalk, and the next issue of  ‘Teachers in the Spotlight’.

This month our ‘teacher in the spotlight’ is Monica Bertuzzi who works for St. George’s International School in Rome, Italy. Monica has been coordinating both the Mandarin and the EAL programmes there for the last 5 years.

In our first piece, we have an interview with Monica in which she shares some of her classroom experiences with us, and gives some insight into her own teaching interests and the challenges ahead for the CLT industry.

Next, you can download an activity that Monica has used successfully in class which uses music videos to practice both reading and listening skills. There is an activity outline to download and use in class with your own students.

Finally, this autumn we have a number of workshops planned around the UK. The list of upcoming cities and dates is below. We will also be attending ACFTL in Boston 18-20 November. Come and visit us at stand #1928, and join in our raffle to win a special prize!
