day of the two-day Oxford Quality in Russia event was made of two parts.
In the early morning we were expected at a Moscow school that kindly agreed to share with
us their professional experience in teaching English. In the afternoon we were invited
to the M.I.Rudomino All-Russia State Library for Foreign Literature for two
seminars - ‘10 Ways Into Grammar’ and ‘Teaching Reading: Getting Started’ - hosted
by Dr SarahVilliers, OUP Consultant and Teacher
Trainer with over 30 years of teaching, lecturing, research and training experience.
As I arrived
in Moscow early
in the morning I had to get to school as soon as possible. We were expected to be
there by 9 am. I had to take the underground and then a bus to be on time in Gymnasium
No 1542, which is in one of residential districts in the west of the capital
city – in Solntsevo.
know for sure when I had to get off, yet as I was getting on the bus I noticed
a few ladies who looked like teachers. They asked the bus driver for Aviatorov Street
and I knew at once they were my colleagues. Later on we got to know each other;
they were from the Urals as well: Chelyabinsk, Osersk
