How can teachers improve their English? Seriously… how?

Lydia will share her experience as a language learner and also…

  • 8 reasons why our English doesn’t improve despite our everyday contact with it
  • what it takes to make a significant difference in our own English learning
  • how to find the time for improving our English even if we’re very busy
  • how to change our passive vocabulary into active and start using more advanced expressions

and a bonus:

  • how to read hundreds of online English magazines (including The Economist!) for free. Legally.

This time, English teachers won’t talk about improving their students’ language skills. This will be all about us, teachers, and how we can keep our language “in shape” so that we can be even better teachers for our students.

More than anything else, however, she’s a passionate language learner (currently working on her 8th) and active in the polyglot community. Her focus is the LEARNING process, rather than the teaching process, as she seeks to apply her experience as a LEARNER to her teaching and mentoring of others who want to learn a foreign language.
