Teachers in Minsk, Belarus get “Activated” by English Language Fellow

Over 40 teachers from around Minsk, Belarus, gathered at the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section to learn about one of the U.S. Department of State’s most popular set of language learning activities: Activate. Activate is a valuable tool for teaching English, but many teachers in Belarus do not have the opportunity or incentive to fully explore the ways this resource can be used in the classroom.

English Language Fellow Chris Anderson led a workshop for teachers so they could dive into all of the great activities in the Activate bundle, generate ideas for using the materials through collaboration with their colleagues, and instill a sense of mutual support between the Belarusian teaching community and the American Embassy Public Affairs Section in Minsk. Everyone left the workshop with some new and exciting approaches to using Activate, along with a renewed sense of pride knowing that they are part of a community of talented English language teachers.
