In order to exchange experiences on challenges and expectations of teaching this language in the basic skills of listening and writing, will take place on January 25 and 26 at the University of Holguin, the 3rd workshop for English teachers of Education Higher
The event, convened by the British Council, will be attended by teachers from the provinces of Holguín, Las Tunas and Camagüey. Debates will focus on the development of competences to continue updating the European Reference Framework for Languages (MCRERL), to practice the English language in a professional linguistic environment and to become familiar with methodologies and teaching approaches.

The appointment will be an excellent opportunity for exchange among specialists and will be complementary with a group of actions and strategies of the University of Holguín aimed at enhancing the teaching of the Anglo-Saxon language, since one of the competences that a university graduate must show is the mastery of this language. Since 2015, a policy of improvement has been implemented in Cuban universities to raise the standards of teaching the English language, as part of the modifications announced by the Ministry of Higher Education.

    Thousands of tourists visit Cuba, and Holguin, from Great Britain each year. Would it be possible to arrange for any who are interested to spend some time at the University, to converse with students?
