ESP Seminar : English in Vocational Training
We are pleased to announce that a seminar devoted to English for Ciclos Formativos is being held in Alicante city next May 12 at (click) Sede Universitaria Ciudad de Alicante , Avda. Ramón y Cajal,nº 4 , from 9 to 14 h.
This event is only possible thanks to the generous effort of the University of Alicante. We do appreciate their help.
This mini conference is organised by APAVAC and endorsed by Universitat d'Alacant. At APAVAC we realise that ESP is one of the most neglected areas in ELT and wish to bring together professionals who are involved in a growing field. As most know, LOE adaptation of Vocational Training Cycles means that a number of hours of Technical English are being included in the syllabuses as a RMI (Reserva de Modulo en Inglés) and although only temporarily the increment in hours for us Teachers of English is substantial. We also know that especially in industrial Cycles published materials are scarce and many of us are at a bit of a loss when designing course content. We also feel neglected by our educational authority who will not provide proper training.
We would like this event to be the starting point of a permanent group of colleagues who get together to share materials, experiences, ideas and general info on all ESP matters.
The event is free and open to all. However, priority is given to APAVAC members since there are only 80 places.
Bear in mind, though, that training activities such as this are free and only possible thanks to the generosity of our speakers and the support of APAVAC membership. If you are not a member yet, please contribute by joining us To see the programme, click HERE
