A leaping February

Did you know that this year we’ll have a 29th of February? Have you taught your students the word for that yet? How would you help them learn the term, “leap year”?

Would you ask students what is it called in their first language? Would you give them a list of other words that collocate with leap? Would you elicit synonyms?

Well, one synonym is “spring”!!

Come spring, in the leap year with us!  ELT Springboard Bern will be meeting (not on the 29th) at the Lehrerzimmer at the Progr on Tuesday the 23rd of February at 8:00 pm.

The topic will be practical tips for teaching. Come share a good activity you like to do with your students. What’s the procedure, and why does it work? And come ready to learn something new that you can use on Wednesday!
