TeachingEnglish webinar

Last night I had my first experience of presenting a webinar. It ended up being rather enjoyable: I'd been worried about not being able to see my audience, as most presenters are the first time I suspect. However, thanks to the great support from Jürgen Wagner, the organiser, and a really receptive audience I didn't feel isolated, or as if I was just talking to myself in front of the computer screen...Jürgen works for the Landesinstitut für Pädagogik und Medien in Saarbrücken, Germany, and this was part of a series of teacher development webinars which they host under his organisation. Last night, I was giving a tour of TeachingEnglish and giving some background on the kind of materials we are developing and why, as well as covering areas such as continuing professional development for teachers. You can watch a recording of the webinar here: http://breeze.lpm.uni-sb.de/p40556809/ Many thanks to all of you who came along! As promised, there are some links below which you might find useful. Meanwhile, I hope to have the chance to do further webinars with Jürgen in the future - and if you have any suggestions for webinar topics do leave a comment below.British Council sites:

hi! I am working for the Welsh language project in Argentina and am, amongst other things, preparing a pack of teaching ideas based on 4 children's books which we have in Welsh and Spanish and arrived at Little Red Riding Hood today, entered here and saw the wealth of stuff for EFL and wondered would you be ok if I borrowed the ideas but translated them into Welsh? To have flashcards etc ready is fabulous and there are always new ideas to be borrowed..hasta luego!

Hi Rob,
Thank you very much for these great teaching/ learning websites.
I came across an interesting teaching website a couple of days ago, and thought I would just share it.
You may already be familiar with it. Still, here it is
with very best wishes
