Such thrilling days the English teachers of our school have had at the XIV international conference, learning the newest techniques in teaching English for foreign learners.  There had been much expectation (before the conference) for sharing ideas and experiences with the most important speakers and philosophers in the teaching area, that now, our English teacher staff feel much more prepared to encounter any difficulty in the classroom context.  Having listened to Jeremy Harmer, Scott Thornbury, and the Chilean teacher, Paula Rebolledo, among others, our teachers have broaden and polished their minds with more hidden passages of the ‘Communicative Approach’ in order to improve their lessons and… Continue reading

Plagiarism? :O

What is plagiarism? According to the Cambridge English dictionary the word means: ‘to use another person’s ideas or work and pretend that it is your own’.
