Session Reports by Anna Conway
My name is Anna Conway and I am delighted to be chosen to be one of British Council's roving reporters for the Glasgow IATEFL Conference 2012.
I was born in Yerevan, Armenia and was doing my BA in American Studies when I had a job offer to teach English to 18-19-year-old sportspeople at the Olympic School of Yerevan. I loved the job so much that I decided to become a professional English Teacher.
From 2001 to 2009, I worked in Kazakhstan and Russia as an in-company teacher of General and Business English. In Kazakhstan, I also designed and delivered Training Courses for Russian-English-Russian Interpreters in Presentation skills.
In 2009, I came back to Armenia and have been teaching English to adults and also training teachers.
In terms of Professional Development I have done a CELTA course and a British Council Course in Learning Technologies for the Classroom.
Over the last few years, I have become very interested in online teaching and my aim now is to become a moderator on online courses.
My next project is to write a multi-level Russian Language Course book for non-native speakers.
