Elluminate, Inc., the world’s leading provider of virtual classroom technology, has created an engaging and fun opportunity to learn English as Second Language. The Fire and Ice ESL! program targets primary and secondary school teachers and connects them to certified and native English instructors using the power of the Internet.
Elluminate has joined forces with Europe’s top supplier of online English training courses, Digital Publishing, as well as LANCELOT Schools, a certified and accredited teacher training organisation. Fire and Ice ESL! is aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference, an internationally recognized standard for evaluating and measuring language skills.
In this highly interactive workshop, Elluminate’s Stace Wills will present a case study from their groundbreaking online project to train rural Colombian teachers in beginner English. Joining Stace will be some key team members who will share their triumphs and pitfalls pertaining to education across borders. A “must see” for anyone considering launching their own live online training course.
