JETSET Seminar in Nis, 27-28 January 2012

    GLOBAL INPUT - LCCI IQ Reps for Italy, Slovenia and the Balkans have decided to organize an official office opening seminar to make all the clients from the region familiar with the changes as well as with the new member of the staff.

    The seminar was held in Nis, on 27th and 28th January.

    The seminar was opened by Mr. Daniele Piacenti, GLOBAL INPUT - LCCI Reps Executive Manager, who welcomed the guests and gave an introduction to the seminar.

    Ms. Sue Wall, JETSET Chief Examiner, and our lecturer, gave a presentation on exam preparation and examiners' approach to marking. The presentation consisted of three sessions- she covered three exam components- speaking, writing and listening. The review of test components was followed by demonstration and practical activity in pairs/groups, practical activity based on marking of free writing, specific pointers and re-preparation for listening. Afterwards, the participants had the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback. Mrs. Wall provided great insight and helped the participants with suggestions, ideas, and thought-provoking questions.

     We hope that all of the teachers who had the opportunity to be with us enjoyed it and learned something they can put to use in their work. To those who could not join us, we hope to put on similar events in the future.
