Making an impact
Hear from educators whose practice have been positively impacted by our innovative approach to learning and professional development.
Valuable workshop experience
It was all so valuable! The workshop was interesting and practical. We left with great resources to use in the classroom as well. I wouldn't change anything - the variety of activities and presenters complemented each other. The location was comfortable and the food was delicious and generous.
The facilitators from Learning Circle helped my french become better than I had imagined I was capable of. I have a newfound confidence in how well I'll be able to interact with the public for my upcoming move to Lyon.
As a languages teacher, it is important
As a languages teacher, it is important for me to keep on learning another language so that I can explore various second language acquisition theories and put them into practice.
