“We were given a chance to get acquainted with new products, textbooks, and interactive webinars which can be used by both a teacher and a pupil. It is very important that the last seminar was devoted to preparation to the English exam that will supposedly become obligatory,” the headmaster of gymnasium No. 6 Valentina Kashaeva told PenzaNews.
She added that the member of the scientific methodological board on foreign languages of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation Lyudmila Kozhevnikova, who is engaged in exams programme development, told participants of the trainings on new tendencies.
“We learnt local and foreign standards, it was explained to us what they have in common, and in what way they differ. It was interesting to find out what the better way for exam preparation is, which textbooks are more preferable, and how to build a system of control so that we can check pupils but at the same time it remains interesting and educational,” the interlocutor noted.
Valentina Kashaeva added that the trainings conducted for teachers of English were informative.
“They showed us what possibilities we have here, in Russia, and how to use them, as well as the possibilities we will get if we register on foreign websites,” the headmaster of Penza gymnasium No. 6 said.
During the period September to November 2016, the publishing house of the Cambridge university held 3 sessions for teachers of English at the premises of gymnasium No. 6 in Penza.
