3-day workshop

November 20-22

Wieniawski Hotel, Lublin, Poland

09:00 - 16:00 CET

What's the Workshop about?

You’re an experienced English teacher working with adults. That’s why you’re here.
And that’s why this workshop is for you.

We would like to introduce you to the new teaching method that we have been developing within our interdisciplinary transnational team of educators, teachers, methodologists and all the professionals who care about the high quality of learning outcomes. The IC-English method is a set of tools that consists of training materials for adult learners, a practical e-handbook and e-learning lessons that are addressed to you to help you fully use all the capabilities of what we’ve created.

During the workshop we will ask you to share with us feedback on the method and all the tools associated with it. Your voice is what improves our materials and makes them better adjusted to the real needs of learners and teachers/trainers.
