Call for Poster Sessions | Shakespeare 400

Create perfectlonglashes (1)

One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.

If there ever was a pen that changed the world that would be the pen of William Shakespeare.

Have you ever used a Shakespeare’s quote, a line from a sonnet, a play or a fragment of a play to teach English? If yes, come and join us in the year of celebrating 400 years of bard’s death and share your lesson plan at our 14th annual conference.

This year’s poster session is a 45 minute presentation where teachers demonstrate a lesson plan or a classroom activity on the topic of William Shakespeare. It is presented on the poster and half of the time is devoted to questions and answers. The posters will be displayed in the venue hall and the presenters are expected to share ideas with participants.

English Access Microscholarship Program Award Ceremony

On October 15, cultural attaché of the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade, Ms Erika Kuenne, delivered certificates of award to the new class of English Access Microscholarship students in Serbia. The opening ceremony was held at the Municipal Library Petar Kocic in Belgrade and attended by 25 students and their proud parents.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented by U.S. Embassy Serbia and English Language Teachers’ Association – ELTA, the Access program provides two years of English language instruction to 13–15 year-old students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Through after-school courses, intensive summer sessions, cultural activities and enhancement seminars, Access students acquire English language skills, improve their knowledge of the American culture, and develop greater sensitivity to cultural differences. The ultimate goal of the program is to increase the student’s opportunities in the formal economy and make them more competitive for higher education awards and scholarships in the United States and in other countries.
