Free Barcelona Teacher Workshops

Friday February 16th

11.00 – 11.50 Power to the learner: What do students say they value in a language course and what implications does this have for teachers? I will share some informal research based on student feedback at Oxford House which carries a few surprises and which led me  to think that some elements of established TEFL theory and practice maybe hindering rather than helping our students. Come and find out which!  – Duncan Foord, Oxford TEFL Director
