15th ELT Conference

February 23rd 2019

Gather round! Çevre College is bound to open its portals on 23rd February 2019 to celebrate the 15th annual ELT FEST. We offer you an opportunity to cultivate your passion in teaching English with eternal zest. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, aware of the core power of miracle workers, once said, “A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.” The bulk of energy in our life comes not merely from our intellect but from our emotions and feelings. Teaching English requires building a motivated group of learners who are excited to communicate in another language. Thus, let the festive fever pump up your walk of teaching in 15 ways.

1. Give them the tools to express themselves.

2. Assist them to advance their English abilities.

3. Sparkle the insight to a broader perspective.

4. Facilitate life through 21st century skills.

5. Galvanize them to think critically.

6. Help them to take initiative in your activities.

7. Inspire them to become responsible global citizens.

8. Demonstrate adaptability and flexibility.

9. Set a collaborative environment.

10. Encourage them to be creative.

11. Develop a healthy rapport with them.

12. Ignite an experience that underpins a meaningful learning as well as a solid communication.

13. Bear in mind that to create an efficient team, you must form bonds.

14. Respect diverse talents and ways of learning.

15. Make them become outrageously successful.

We cordially invite all passionate teachers to attend our 15th ELT conference, The ULTIMATE PASSION FOR ELT :)
