If I have to come up with one word to describe my SOL Teacher Training Course experience, that will be sharing. As the SOL slogan reads, we all shared one language. My hospitable hostess shared her typical English home with me. Then I had to share my lovely pink room with a friendly and charming Belarusian girl. We both shared the same most amusing classes of Simon and Geoff. In the afternoons Tim, our guide, would share with us the most amazing sights and views of the English countryside. Later, after dinner we would all get together and share our experiences and emotions over a pint of beer or cider.
For me it was a highly practical course in language development and methodology, including the use of creative drama in teaching. In the ideas we exchanged and the practices we discussed I definitely found inspiration for my future work with my students.
