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.

Seminar on A2 speaking test.



Last Friday 8th February 25 members of APAVAC attended a great seminar on  assessing and testing speaking at A2 level. It was held at IES Luis Vives where LENGUAS VIVAS , which is an official examiner centre of the Cambridge University ESOL Examinations, offered an interesting, surprising and very useful seminar. It was presented by Ximo Espinosa from Lenguas Vivas and  carried out by Richard Dunn  who is at the board of examiners for all the Cambridge examinations.

 INTERESTING to learn about  the method to design the tests which most of us have done and  what items of the speaking were the ones to take into account and which ones were to be discarded. The use of scales to chunk the different aspects of speaking were extremely  USEFUL!!! And finally it was SURPRISING to realise that the test Cambridge University handle,  are far easier than  the ones we are using in our A2 tests......!!!!! Something we all should think about ....
