Film English has been awarded an ELTons for Innnovation in Teacher Resources at the 11th ELTon Awards ceremony which took place at Tavistock House in central London on Wednesday.

ELTONS 2013 - 4581

The ELTons, run by the British Council and sponsored by Cambridge ESOL,  are the only international awards that recognise and celebrate innovation in English language teaching. They reward educational resources that help English language learners and teachers to achieve their goals.  All candidates are judged by an independent panel of ELT experts, using the Delphi Technique.

ELTONS 2013 - 4791

Here is a  judge’s quote for Film English:

 

“A great resource for teachers which is organised extremely well. The lessons do promote critical thinking in the language classroom, and do encourage learners to reflect on values while learning a language.”

You can watch a video of the ceremony here.

Here is are two short video clip of me receiving the award and giving an interview afterwards.

 

Thank you to Mark Bain, my web designer, for making the Film English site look so beautiful, and to all the loyal subscribers and readers of Film English who have made this award possible.
