What do teachers say

about the 'Language Teaching for the Planet Course'

What an original and creative course! Flavien LanmantchionI appreciate the opportunity and learning the course has brought into me. As teachers we can also make a difference with the classes we teach by saving the planet.

This course is very useful in helping generating ideas between participants. We learn from each other as well as getting the chance to visit a site with example materials. Perhaps the most useful thing I will take away is that I can see it is possible to integrate environmental perspectives more purposefully, and that the opportunities we had to share reflections on this have been very refreshing.

A refreshing way to consider how climate change could be part of everyday teaching. A must for any educator!
