Last Saturday, May 24th, 20 or so teachers came to the talk organised by BETEA to introduce to Basque English Teachers a British Council Project to work on English contemporary Literature in the classroom, called BritLit.
The speaker was Verrisimo Toste , one of the teachers involved in writing materials for BritLit.
In 3 hours Verri not only explained what BritLit is about, but also talked about reading with learners and gave teachers very useful tips to foster reading in the classrooom environment.
The evaluation of the session has been very good with teachers willing to attend more events like this.
Next appointment: September in Bilbao , a British Council, BETEA and TESOL organised training scheme.
See you there and meanwhile have an excellent and well deserved summer holiday.
