The lingustic discoveries of 2012

Tweet seats, eye broccoli, subway salmon and many others.

Every year, new words and phrases slip effortlessly into our informal language, often to stay there for generations, and, as a philologist, Adam Jacot De Boinod can confirm that 2012 has been no exception.


Here are a few of his favourites from the past 12 months. First appearing in newspapers, broadcasts, the electronic and social media, they have rapidly moved into general use.


All have the virtues of brevity, wit and invention – and there’s no doubt many of them are here to stay.

CLIL i bilingvalna nastava



Poštovani saradnici,

Sa zadovoljstvom Vas pozivamo na konferenciju CLIL & BILINGUAL EDUCATION koja će se održati 17. novembra 2012. u prostorijama Osme beogradske gimnazije (Grčića Milenka 71) sa sledećom satnicom:

9:30 Registracija

10:00 – 10:30 Britanski Savet, obraćanje

10:30 – 11:30 Plenarno predavanje: Teaching other subjects through English: true CLIL in action - Zoltan Rezmuves

English becomes a springboard for learning other subjects through the teaching of CLIL. How do

we incorporate CLIL content from the very early stages onwards to the dual benefit of both the

language that we are teaching them and the content of the subject with which we are familiarizing them?

11:30 – 12:00 Pauza za kafu

12:00 – 12:30 CLIL support materials - Matija Janičić, Jelena Korać

12:45 – 13:30 Obraćanje profesora iz škole koja je u procesu realizovanja bilingvalne nastave

13:30 – 14:30 Pauza

14:30 – 15:30 Plenarno predavanje: English in the real wolrd - Zoltan Rezmuves

Real world content in English classes can offer us a motivating framework for presenting the language, and for inspiring genuine communication through reflecting on the learners’ own culture as well as other cultures. In today’s world of ‘international Englishes’ how do we find the balance in English classes between familiarizing our students with English-speaking cultures and providing them with a practical foundation for communicating in English as a global lingua franca?

15:45 – 17:00 Debata

Na konferenciji očekujemo i predstavnike Ministarstva prosvete.

Molimo Vas da prijavu za učešće na ovoj konferenciji pošaljete najkasnije do srede 14. novembra na adresu: nevenapejovski@englishbook.rs ili putem faksa 011/3131-044 sa sledećim podacima:

11th ELTA Serbia Conference




Dear members and colleagues,

ELTA Serbia is proud to announce the 11th Annual ELTA Serbia Conference - "He who dares to teach must never cease to learn"

You are invited to join us from 10th to 11th May 2013 at the Faculty of Education in Belgrade.

ELT is a complex, multifaceted activity which often requires teachers to juggle multiple tasks and goals knowledgeably and skillfully at the same time. In order to understand their practice better EFL teachers pursue different ways of professional development. Engaging in reflective practice, as an ongoing example of lifelong learning, aims to make teachers draw meaning from their practice, behaviours and methods inside the classroom with the intent to change for the better.


Having this in mind, ELTA Serbia 2013 Conference will focus on reflective teaching in the broadest sense of its meaning. Therefore, it is our pleasure to invite you to share your classroom experience with a wider community of teachers who settle for nothing less than excellence.

Your ELTA Serbia team

Seminari OKC

Poštovane kolegenice i kolege,

nakon kraćeg (nadamo se prijatnog) odmora, svi ponovo krećemo sa radom. Kao što znate, za narednu školsku godinu Obrazovno kreativni centar spremio je 4 internet seminara, akreditovanih sa 24 boda. Seminari će se realizovati na adresama: www.e-seminari.net i www.okcseminari.net na različitim serverima iz bezbedonosnih razloga. Da bi planirali vaše stručno usavršavanje za narednu školsku godinu, predstavićemo vam raspored naših seminara u prvom polugodištu.

Seminari će se realizovati u oktobru, novembru i decembru, svaki seminar po dva puta:

Oktobar

Vodič za čas odeljenjskog starešine
Dobra priprema za čas uspešan čas
Blog, tviter i fejsbuk u nastavi


Novembar

Vodič za čas odeljenjskog starešine
Blog, tviter i fejsbuk u nastavi
Nastava u oblaku


Decembar

Dobra priprema za čas uspešan čas
Nastava u oblaku


Prijava seminara za oktobarski ciklus počeće 3. septembra, kada ćemo vam poslati detaljnije obaveštenje o uslovima i načinu prijave seminara. U prvom polugodištu svaki seminar će se realizovati dva puta, a vi sami možete birati redosled i dinamiku pohađanja seminara. U drugom polugodištu takođe planiramo realizaciju prolećnog ciklusa, tako da nema potreba za paralelnim pohađanjem seminara.

Kao i prošle godine i ove smo pronašli partnera sa kojm ćemo obezbediti cenu seminara nižu od tržišne za određeni broj učesnika. Detaljnije inforamcije o ceni i načinu plaćanje očekujte u narednom email-u kada ćemo otvoriti prijavu.

Srdačan pozdrav i srećan početak nove školske godine

The latest from macmillandictionary.com!



Why do some people have so much difficulty persuading us that when they say ‘sorry’ they really mean it?

In a post about the pragmatics of apologizing, our new guest bloggers Simon Williams and Jules Winchester from the University of Sussex examine corporate apologies for evidence of genuine contrition.

Commas are good; semicolons are even better!

Elsewhere on the blog, Stan Carey explains his fondness for the semicolon and Laine Redpath Cole gets pleasurably waylaid by the poetry of the desire path.
