Testing times! My 40 years’ experience of ELT in Germany

Session description

Diana Metzner

Session details:

My expat teaching career in Germany has accompanied important milestones in ELT, particularly in assessment, from the 1970s until today. Drawing on my own experience, I reflect on how goals, methods and outcomes have changed almost beyond recognition. Themes will be communicative competence, English-only instruction, the CEFR and standardised testing - illustrated by personal anecdotes in the British humorous tradition.
