[ELTeCS_PERU] Fwd: Register for #ELTcreativity LIVE ONLINE in a few hours!‏

If you are unable to see this email properly please click here
Dear colleague, 

Do teachers need to be creative? What stops us from being creative? How can we and our students become more creative? 

There's still time to register for the live-stream of Creativity in teaching and learning: what, why, how?; which takes place at 18.00 UK time today

This highly practical, interactive seminar will help you to discover small changes that can make a big difference to creativity in the classroom. Three speaker sessions will provide successful activities and real-life examples to inspire teaching and learning. Participants will be encouraged to unleash their creative side by writing and drawing throughout the event and we will also be joined by an artist, who will illustrate thoughts and ideas as they arise.

We encourage all attendees, online and in person, to make comments and ask questions. Share ideas and network with fellow English language teaching professionals watching the event around the world:

  • on Twitter using #ELTcreativity
  • on the #ELTcreativity Padlet
  • or using the comments section to the right of the live-stream player on YouTube

In the meantime to help you to get the most out of the live-stream you can:
  • Read extracts from the new publication Creativity in the English language classroom
  • Watch a video about how to be creative in the classroom (to the right of this text) with Alan Maley, co-editor of Creativity in the English language classroom

Enter the #ELTcreativity competition for your chance to win one of three book vouchers!

Do you like to get creative? To enter the competition send us a photo to answer one of the following questions:
  • What inspires you or your learners to be creative?
  • How have your students been creative in the classroom?
Send your photo to @BCseminars 
using #ELTcreativity for your chance to win a book voucher and a copy of the new publication Creativity in the English language classroom!

Three photos will be chosen and the winners will be announced at the end of the live stream on Wednesday 24 June.


Teachers from around the globe please submit your questions to make this a truly global discussion about creative learning. Be inspired and join the debate with experts in the field.

We look forward to welcoming you online!

With thanks and kind regards,
Rebecca and Rhea

[ELTeCS_PERU] Books books books and more books (only for book worms)

Sometimes it is difficult and expensive to find books in English here in the city of Lima. There are some shops that carry some titles -mainly mass market paperbacks of best sellers- that is why this piece of intelligence goes up in value. Tomorrow, in the Church of the Good Shepherd -Santa Cruz 491 Miraflores, from 10 am to 2 pm- there is going to be a second-hand book fair. It´s not the first time they have it. In fact, I have been there before and have been lucky to find excellent titles at incredible prices (they used to be three for S/. 10!!!). The hall is arranged so that the books wait for you spine-up on large tables, the eager readers line up and examine them, pick the ones they like and proceed to pay one of the volunteer ladies at the door. After that you may go home and start your reading, or you may want to sit at the tables at the back of the hall and have tea or scones or a sandwich or just hang around and talk to the book lovers who gather that day. I´ll be there early in the morning so that I can grab the good ones before they go away to other hands!
See you!
