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.

Fwd: Primary Teacher workshop. Dramatising Language: practical techniques for teaching young learners in Valencia (English Wink)

Dear APAVAC members,
We have the pleasure to announce the I Teacher's workshop in our center: "Dramatising Language: practical techniques for teaching young learners". Next Saturday, May 18 at 5 pm. 
Drama games are a fun and dynamic way to help learners explore their imagination and discover their own creativity, while also developing their confidence and teamwork skills. In this workshop, we will look at ways in which such activities can be integrated into the classroom.
1)      Introduction to theatre activities. Group dynamics, warmers and icebreakers.
2)      Advanced theatre activities. Including roll games or character interpretation, and interactive story creation.
Useful for teachers with some or no drama experience. The time dedicated to each activity could vary given to the necessities or proposals of the group.
Principal aim:
This fun and practical 2-hour workshop, has two principal objectives: in one hand, it will give the teacher a set of strategies which will permit to add a new dimension to its teaching capacities, and in the other hand, an intensive practice of the English language.
Also, it will serve to explore and go in depth in a creative and practical methodology which can give you resources that can be used for the teaching of Primary students. Learn to use drama techniques: games, problem resolution, improvisation in the foreign language classroom according to the student's linguistic level, etc. 
Finally, it will be an opportunity for teachers to share ideas about good practices. Given that the course is directed to Primary teachers, the session will focus on adequate techniques for different levels and ages, proposing ideas that could be adapted to each particular case.
John Harrop splits his time between teaching, teacher training, his activity as a writer and Bat-i-Burillo Theater. He has worked around Europe doing different theatre workshops and interactive shows for students and teachers. He has also written educational material for the BBC, OUP (Move On), and Macmillan Heinemann (United y Imagine). Now he lives in Sevilla. 
The session takes place as a workshop. It is recommended to bring comfortable and informal clothes, as well as sport shoes. The material for the workshop will be send via email (.pdf or .doc documents) so that the ideas will be easier to adapt, and visualize the links easily.
To make the reservation,  you need to send an email to with the following info:
