Humanising Language Teaching
Pilgrims year-round international teacher training workshops
Pilgrim's main teacher training work takes place in April , when Thailand has its long school holiday, and in June, July, August and September. However we also run a "roving workshop" programme all the year round and the motto of this service is we come to you.
Where have Pilgrims trainers worked in the September 1999 to September 2000 academic period? Let me pick some examples from a rather long list:
October 1999. Mario Rinvolucri did workshops for JALT members in Nagoya, Hiroshima, Takushima, Matsuyama and Osaka , (part of a " 4 corners" JALT tour of Japan.)
February 2000 Gill Johnson did a one week TT course for adult and secondary teachers at the British Council in Brussels, Belgium
February 2000. Mario Rinvolucri worked with State Secondary teachers in Munich, Germany, and did a day's training for MELTA, the Bavarian business English teachers' association.
March 2000. Bonnie Tsai worked in Paris, France, with an elite group of primary school teachers.
March 2000. Sheelagh Deller worked with teachers from the big private schools in Zagreb, Croatia.
April 2000 Sheelagh Deller worked with teachers in a business English School in Montevideo, Uruguay, and with various professional groups in Santiago de Chile.
May 2000 Jim Wingate teacher-trained in several secondary schools and Universities in the vast 160 km long stretch of Istanbul, Turkey.
September 2000. John Morgan worked for two weeks in Terni and Orvieto, near Rome, Italy, helping primary school teaches improve their English.
If you want a teacher training workshop in your place for
3 hours, for a day, for 3 days, for a week or more please contact
If some one in, say, Oulu, wants a workshop in their school, we would try to find other people in Finland who also want workshops, so that travel costs can be shared.
Pilgrims can call on a network of internationally well-known people, like those mentioned above, to run a workshop in your city/ valley/island/town.
Cost to you is in the £400 or $600 dollar area per six clock-hour day.
Here is a menu of topics we have been asked to offer over the past three years:
You may have areas you would like us to deal with which are not included in the above menu. If you outline your needs clearly we can see if we can help you satisfy them.
