Newbold Insights with the English Language Centre

Side by side with the degree classes, Newbold has a tradition of offering great programmes for students interested in improving their English.

This has enabled our English teachers to gather years of experience in working with students from all over the world to help them find the most efficient and enjoyable ways of making progress in their language studies. And, even though we will always be looking for fresh approaches to improve our delivery, we also believe that we have made some valuable discoveries along the way.

These discoveries we would now like to share with others – we have put together a package of webinars reaching out to teachers, language teachers, and ESOL teachers in different parts of the world, hoping to be of help and to learn more from each other through dialogue. 

Webinar Presenters

Newbold Insights

ELC

For the first set of webinars, we have brought together a team of instructors closely related to the Newbold English Language Centre (ELC). 

Caroline Zagara (BA in Education Studies, Associateship in TESOL) is one of the teachers on the ELC team. She has had the privilege of growing up multilingual and working in different language environments, which has granted her with a special insight into the joys and complexities of language learning. Caroline’s unique passion lies in finding ways to make language learning simultaneously informative and engaging through different creative projects in and outside the classroom. 

Madli Vahtramäe (MA in Special Education) lives and works in Estonia as a special educator most of the time but has been an irreplaceable part of the ELC’s Summer School in English programmes over the last years. Participants of the summer school would see her running the intense and diverse social and spiritual programme as well as giving guest lectures to Summer School PLUS Education students on the importance of noticing the individual needs of each person in your classroom. Seeing and caring are also among Madli’s primary gifts. 

Kärt Lazić (MA in English Language and Literature, MA in English Studies) has combined her theoretical studies of the English language with years of experience of teaching it both in and outside the UK. She believes in figuring out the larger philosophical picture of teaching as well as paying good attention to the particulars of fascinating and creative communication of how the English language works. She is known for being genuinely excited about complex grammar issues and trying to convey that excitement to all students.
