Based on our firm conviction that change in education begins with the individual teacher, the Second Central European Workshop for Learning Teachers of English was conducted. In order to emphasise the main purpose of this meeting, we used the adjective “learning” to the word “teacher”. Workshop participants were provided with a fruitful, inspiring, enjoyable and highly professional environment where they brushed up their English, acquired a lot of new information and gained confidence and support for the new school year.

We live in a world of developing technology. We are living and experiencing firsthand the tremendous changes and innovations that are happening around us and to us. We believe that any successful change starts in the individual human beings – in the teacher and in the student. The First Central European Workshop opened its first workshop in the spirit of a series of workshops for humanistic English teachers. We welcomed 84 teachers from all over Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, UK, France and USA. Its main role was to improve their English and to provide participants with many positive experiences and practical activities for their personal and professional development, and to inspire them before the start of the school year. Together with the partner school Pilgrims and Pilgrims trainers, we contributed to the development of the potential of the teachers, which in turn can reveal the potential in the learners.
