Six English language teachers from around the world, including Shunichi Sugiura, a high school teacher from Japan, will receive professional development courses at Bell Teacher Campus in Cambridge this August in recognition of their creativity at overcoming significant challenges in the classroom -- beating out over 2,000 competitors.
Contestants wrote a story of up to 150 words regarding how they "overcame a challenge when teaching English." Sugiura wrote about a series of lessons he used in a second-year class at the technical high school where he had worked for 11 years.
Cambridge ESOL's Marketing Manager, Simon Wright, who was one of the judges, said: “Teachers of this calibre are a real benefit to the millions of people learning English around the globe.”
The competition winners will meet each other and network with teachers from over 50 countries when they participate in a two-week teacher development course at Bell Teacher Campus in Cambridge this August.
