Our great new monthly lesson plan for December looks back at some of the key events in 2014. Students form teams to complete a quiz and then create their own.

Watch a recording of Graham Stanley's recent webinar where he talked about how the British Council Uruguay are developing a unique approach to teaching English to state school primary children through video-conferencing.

During November 2014, TeachingEnglish and EnglishAgenda focused on CPD to celebrate the launch of our latest publication 'Innovations in the continuing professional development of English language teachers'. There were a number of blog posts, webinars, podcasts and a live event.
