Pub Quiz

Save the date: THURSDAY, 23 April 2015, opening 18.00, start of quiz 19.00

Where: TGIFridays, Schubertring 13, 1010 Vienna

What: Pub Quiz for English Teachers

Come along and join us for a pub quiz. While Irish pubs have been doing this for a while and the quizzes have become very popular, this is the first one for TEA. So stop by and try your hand at answering all sorts of questions while networking with colleagues. This evening is all about having fun and not about showing off how much you know, but we will have prizes for the winning table and expect you to leave the event with new friends and new knowledge. So come and join us, and bring a colleague… we will have a few questions related to our profession as well as many more. Arrive at 6 p.m. if you want to order dinner, the fun starts at 7! Please register at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 20 April so we can give appropriate numbers to the restaurant.

p.s. for those of you who are not sure exactly what a pub quiz is, go to this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pub_quiz

Trainers and Programmes

Simon Gill is originally from England but has been living in what used to be Czechoslovakia since 1989. He has worked with teachers in many countries in Central and Eastern Europe and is the co-author of Intercultural Activities in the Oxford University Press Basics series.

Bag of Tricks

Every experienced teacher has his or her own ‘bag of tricks’, a collection of tried and tested classroom activities and approaches assembled down the years. In this series of workshops I would like to share mine with you; we will cover a range of areas, including (but not limited to) communicative grammar/ language practice, using songs and short clips, the role of culture in the classroom, creative writing, and a little bit of pronunciation. You are also invited to bring along your own favourite ‘recipes’ and share them with the rest of us.

Philip Kerr is a teacher trainer and lecturer who is originally from London, but now lives in Vienna. He has trained teachers all over the world. His publications include the coursebook series ‘Straightforward’ and ‘Inside Out’ (Macmillan) and the methodology book Translation and Own-Language Activities (Cambridge University Press). He is a Board member of TEA.

Word Power

In this series of workshops, we will look at new insights into how vocabulary is stored in the brain, new technologies for learning vocabulary and new methodological approaches. The emphasis will be on fun, lively classroom applications which will be suitable for learners of all levels and ages. There will also be opportunities to explore ways of extending your own vocabulary.
