Oxbridge Madrid - 'Working Together, Sharing Experiences'


OXBRIDGE and CIBALL kindly invite you to our English teachers´ meeting named Working Together, Sharing Experiences which will take place on Thursday the 3rd of November in Madrid.

-        Spend many hours a week preparing for classes and have no other support than your own research,

-        Are eager to learn a new way of preparing and using ready-to-go lesson plans,

-        Have an experience to share from the English teaching world,

-        Want to broaden your knowledge on new methodologies and approaches to teaching incorporating easy-to-use technical support,

-        Want to establish regular connections with professional English teacher who are native speakers,

-        Think you can contribute your experience to improve the level of English teaching in Spain

This meeting will give you an excellent opportunity to explain your approach and get to know what is new in the English teaching world.

We would be delighted to meet you and learn from your experience! We would like to share ours and show you our resources. We have a huge range for all levels and age groups and you don’t have to pay to get them. We would be happy if you try them with your students and give us some feedback.
