On 27 June Swansea University’s Department of Modern Languages, Translation and Interpreting hosted a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshop for teachers and PGCE students of Spanish, jointly organised by Dr Geraldine Lublin on behalf of the Department and Dr Concha Julián de Vega and Carmen Santos Maldonado from the Spanish Embassy Education Office in the UK (featured below, together with MLTI’s Head of Department, Professor Julian Preece, and Dr Geraldine Lublin). The event was also kindly sponsored by the Junta of Castile and León, which funded six scholarships for attendees to take a CPD course in Spain over the summer. The sessions offered ranged from ‘Top Tips for AS/A Level exams’ to ‘Practical Ideas to improve Oral Exam Performance’, ‘How to make the most of poetry in the Spanish as a Foreign Language class’, ‘The two Spains, from 1936 to the present’ and ‘All about my life: Digital Portfolios and specific skills in the SFL class’, the last two offered by MLTI’s own Dr Federico López-Terra and Ms Tanya May respectively. (The full programme of activities can be accessed here.) It has been a pleasure to collaborate with the Education Office of the Spanish Embassy and we shall be looking forward to joining forces again in the near future. ¡Hasta pronto!
