We are so glad to tell you about the next Spanish webinar will be on the 3rd of December of 2021. For this occasion we are going to have two webinars, one at 12:00h (GMT) and a different one at 14:30h (GMT). You can take part in both or one according to your preference. We hope you have enjoyed the last webinars.

Primer tema: ¿Las instituciones escolares nos motivan lo suficiente?

Hora: 12:00 hrs (GMT); 13:00hrs (ESP); 07:00 hrs (MEX/COL)
Expositor: Berenice Hernández Villegas

En muchas instituciones educativas creen que la motivación con cursos de capacitación, el
equipamiento adecuado de las aulas, actividades recreativas para los docentes, la creación de
espacios digitales para el intercambio de información. Es lo adecuado para mantener la
motivación.

¿Esto es suficiente? La profesora interina de lenguas extranjera Silvia Izquierdo. Asegura que la
sociedad no valora el trabajo que desarrollan los docentes. A mi parecer también muchos centros no dan el reconocimiento adecuado a su profesorado, ya que mucho del reconocimiento o fama es gracias al trabajo y esfuerzo de su personal.

Alguna vez en su centro les han preguntado ¿qué te gustaría que hiciéramos para que te sintieras
motivado?

First session: Do school institutions motivate us enough?

Time: 12:00 hrs (GMT); 13:00hrs (ESP); 07:00 hrs (MEX/COL)
Speaker: Berenice Hernández Villegas

Many educational institutions believe that motivation with training courses, proper classroom equipment, recreational activities for teachers, and the creation of digital spaces for the exchange of information is the right thing to do to maintain motivation. 

Is this enough? Interim foreign language teacher Silvia Izquierdo ensures that society does not value the work that teachers do. Isabel Rubí de Celís, a primary school teacher in a public school, believes that the management team of the school or institute must make the teacher "notice that he is doing his job well" so the recognition should begin in the center.

Some centers do not care about any aspect to motivate their teachers. In these times of "pandemic", it is more difficult for the teacher to feel motivated by the center because he does not have the contact and most of the centers were not prepared for this situation. The distance, the lack of materials, and the integration of ICTs, or platforms have made this more difficult. Have you ever been asked: “What would you like for us to do to make you feel motivated?

Berenice Villegas will talk about these challenges we have as an institution and the way we can collaborate to feel motivated as teachers.

Segundo tema: Una experiencia enseñando español en Vietnam

Hora: 14:30hrs (GMT); 16:30hrs (ESP); 09:30hrs (MEX/COL); 21:30hrs (VNM)
Expositor: Daniel Mauricio Blanco Betancourt

Muchos sueñan con viajar y trabajar por todo el mundo, pero a veces ese sueño se queda solo en eso. Pocos profesores se animan a trasladarse a otros lugar y vivir la experiencia de enseñar por el mundo. El profesor Daniel nos comparte su experiencia dando clases en un país diferente al suyo.

Second session: An experience teaching Spanish in Vietnam.

TIme: 14:30hrs (GMT); 16:30hrs (ESP); 09:30hrs (MEX/COL); 21:30hrs (VNM)
Speaker: Daniel Mauricio Blanco Betancourt

Description: While it is true that Spanish is becoming popular as a third language in Asia, not all national contexts are the same. In the case of Vietnam, there is a recent interest, but there is still no network of robust institutions that allow its development. Despite this scenario, it is relevant for the industry to know cases such as Vietnamese to understand the challenges faced when Spanish in these countries and understand the specific contexts in which Spanish is of interest to foreigners in this region of the world.
