Benvinguts al Vostre Blog
Hem pensat que era hora d’unir-nos tots els que ens dediquem a ensenyar ANGLÉS professionalment. L’objectiu és que puguem intercanviar experiències i materials i formar-nos. Volem convertir-nos en un punt de trobada dels professionals de l’anglés i organitzar jornades, xarrades i seminaris. Volem ser la veu dels professionals de l'anglés i col·laborar amb tots els relacionats amb l'anglés i amb l'administració educativa i que se’ns tinga en compte com a interlocutors a l'hora de prendre decisions.
An association to unite us all who teach English professionally has been created. The aim is to share experiences, exchange materials and encourage further training with conferences, lectures and debates and ultimately become the voice of teachers of English and liaise with all those involved and especially with our educational authority.

Meeting APAVAC 17 Nov..
Following the enforcement of Prueba Homologada (A2) in the IESs in early March 2010 we English teachers began to get organized and now we want to inform you that the Associació de Professors d’Anglés de València, Alacant i Castelló (APAVAC) is finally on the road and we want to officially introduce it to you all.
It is time to unite the efforts of all those who teach English professionally. Our goal is to promote the quality of English teaching in Valencia and establish a communication link with the educational authorities. The association will also provide a unique opportunity to exchange experiences, materials and will help us to keep updated through seminars and training courses.
There are other issues related to English which also deserve further consideration like: adaptation to CEFR, the CLIL, the Portfolio, the implementation in Vocational Training, the new PAU, A2 level tests in the IES, the specific problems of Primary Schools and coordination of Primary and Secondary Schools, etc..
