16-17 січня вчителі англійської мови взяли участь у тренінгу «Особливості підготовки до ЗНО та міжнародних іспитів», який провела тренер Оксана Карпій, представник компанії «Лінгвіст».

Інтерактивні вправи, парна та групова форми роботи, різноманітні техніки та технології допомогли тренеру донести задумане та розкрити свій задум.

Активність в обговоренні свідчить про потребу вчителів у професійному спілкуванні та готовності присвячувати час та зусилля самоосвіті та професійному зростанню.
