Making English distance learning a reality #5

Hello teachers! This week, we‘re celebrating World Book Day! As English teachers, you’re surely aware of the many benefits reading a book has for your students: enriching vocabulary, broadening knowledge, keeping themselves entertained… however, during this difficult period, one of the benefits stands out: reading helps us to unwind! In order to celebrate such an important date, we’ve launched a competition: ‘What book are you escaping into during the quarantine?

In this newsletter you’ll also find a number of webinars we’ve prepared to help you move to online teaching and to support your famlily’s mental health in these uncertain times.
