CPD: English First!

Meeting new people, communicating with colleagues and observing them conduct their lessons always gives me a great impulse to look at what I am doing, and to share my own ideas and concerns. On September 4, a new EF, English First Center for Adults was opened in my home city of Novosibirsk. My first impression was one of light, since it is situated in a new very modern building with panoramic views over the city and even glass walls and doors inside. The word transparency thus acquires a new meaning.

The Last Lesson

THE LAST CLASS.
Nina MK, Ph.D.
The last class falls into two distinct categories, one being the end of an academic year, and the other that of finishing school (university, college, refresher course). In my country, there are several traditions which are often observed on such occasions.
