Hi, everyone. I have lived all my life in Rosario, Argentina, where I graduated as a Teacher of English about 20 years ago, and I have been teaching EFL ever since.
Rosario is called "Birthplace of the Flag", since it was here that it was first hoisted in 1812, during the War of Independence. Here's another website of the city
Since 1990 I have been teaching English Literature (and now Literature in English) at Teacher Education and Translation Programmes both at IES "Olga Cossettini" (state) and ISPI "San Bartolomé" (private).
This is a picture of teachers-to-be at IES "O. Cossettini" in 2007. Many of them have already graduated.
In addition, I teach General English at a private language school, in courses preparatory for FCE and CPE Cambridge exams, and I am an Oral Examiner for Cambridge Esol.
I find teaching writing at CEFR B2 level (ie FCE) extremely challenging, and I hope this seminar will help me to design new strategies to cope.
I am mamez on Yahoo, and marielamez on Skype and Delicious.
Looking forward to working with you.
