We are excited to welcome ELF Specialist, Dr. Liz England, to the American Center to conduct two days of workshops to develop skills in teaching English as a foreign language. These are excellent opportunities for current teachers of English who are seeking professional development and new ideas in EFL, particularly in American teaching methodology in this area.
If you attend both days of the workshops, you will receive a certificate of participation.
