The training for the English teachers of Samtskhe-Javakheti region started on February 26. It was conducted by Robert D. Leier, Ph.D. English Language Fellow- Georgia.
The topic of the first meeting was “Teaching for Communication”. Doctor Leier introduced us to a lot of useful issues like: first language acquisition, behaviorist theory, Innatist theory and Interactionist theory, the components of communicative competence, strategies etc. He spoke about the role of a teacher and a learner, the importance of curriculum and lesson planning. Though, the training was held online two hours passed very quickly.
Thanks to ETAG for giving us the opportunity to participate in such an interesting training.
