In a country where so many people look unhappy and given their history, they have plenty to be unhappy about, I was amazed by the enthusiasm and dedication of all the English teachers I met.They threw themselves into the activities and were a joy to work with. Here are a few of the pictures.
Here is Gintare trying to tie a tie. Teachers familiar with TPR will hopefully see that this is an educational exercise.
This is Tatjana, looking like she is dancing but is in fact trying to illustrating a noun, a verb and an adjective simulataneously.
I enjoyed the bowling but was comfortably beaten by Ruta.
Me with Tatjana and Vida at the bowling alley – it looks like I have a very long left arm.
Is there no end to this hard work?
Here is Aulike trying to sell something on TV
Part of my ‘Lessons from (almost) nothing’ session.
Here we see Daiva, Vilma (British Council organiser extraordinaire) and Irma in a concentric circle exercise.
Here are the teachers in Kaunas doing one of my exercises. Thanks to Sviesa for providing the room and the snacks!
Which way is it to the hill of crosses? The teachers in Siauliai don’t look too sure
Giedre and Aulike being silly.
It wasn’t all hard work during the three day seminar, here we see Gintare and Asta relaxing during the bowling evening.
