Teaching English in Spain

Hi everyone

We hope that you and your families are safe and well and have managed to have some time off work and to relax a little during the Easter break.

We've got some more information here about free webinars and courses that we hope will help you over the next few weeks.

Our "Keeping Learning Real" webinars proved very popular so do join us for more. These include the rescheduled "Keeping Learning Real: 2º - 4º ESO", "Addressing Covid 19 in the virtual classroom" and "Online ideas for Primary teaching" . All details below!

We're also looking for your help! The British Council has launched a global survey for teachers and teacher educators to help us identify how you are dealing with the crisis, what you need and how we might help you. The survey is anonymous. Details and link below!

Finally, you are also invited to join the IATEFL Global Get Together this weekend. This year's conference has been transformed into a two day professional development web event which is open to members and non-members. Take a look at the sessions available!

¡Hasta pronto, ánimo ... and keep safe!
