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.

I APAVAC Conference

I APAVAC Conference

The English Teachers Association for Valencia , Alacant &  Castelló APAVAC after almost 20 months of being there are holding our first conference in October this year.
The Conference will  not only be a place where we  get together, share experiences and get in-depth knowledge of the latest trends of Languages acquisition  but will also be a showcase for all concerned to see how well the teachers of English get organised and how eager we are to learn and become better professionals.
Bear in mind that this conference is only possible thanks to membership fees and the generosity and effort of many.

You can also contribute by becoming a member.

How to join the conference:

You have to register in advance although anyone who is an ET can attend  registration will give you  priority.
