I have decided I don’t only want to attend the next IATEFL conference in Glasgow, I want to present a paper there.

Having thought carefully about what topic is the most prominent in my work at the moment, I decided it had to be something related to CPE preparation. Within that, my Book-a-month project is by and large my favorite. Hence, this is my IATEFL 2012 proposal. I hope they’ll like it!


Proficiency a (few) books away


Having been an exams preparation teacher in Sao Paulo for 6 years, introducing literature into my CPE courses has so far been the most effective (and fun) element in the whole syllabus. In this talk, I’ll discuss how to explore books in the CPE classroom,which books (not just classics) and the difference it has made in candidates’ performance in all papers.

Does it sound like something you’d be interested in attending?
