At EPA! Español en Panama we always keep our teachers trained with the latest teaching methods. As you already know our school is a certified center by Instituto Cervantes. Being a certified school one of the requirements is having qualified teachers on the ELE teaching methods. As a school we always want our students to receive a top quality education with the latest methods in ELE.
ELE stands for (Español como lengua extranjera) Spanish as a foreign language.
On Saturday 28th of March 2020 we had the first part of our workshop through a virtual platform (zoom) based on the latest ELE teaching methods.
Some of the topics they saw in the workshop were:
- The common European framework of reference (CEFR).
- How to apply the CEFR to the field of Spanish as a foreign language according to the Instituto Cervantes.
- Understand the differentiation by levels and the characteristics of each one.
It was a successful workshop and our teachers had time to exchange personal knowledges and experiences.
