Within the scope of offering high quality education to her teachers and students, Ms Miranta Merkouri arranged the first Webinar at the premises of her school on Monday, 28 April 2014, under the auspices of the Hellenic American Union Center for Examinations and Certification in Athens.
The Webinar was conducted by the Teacher Trainer, Examiner and Academic Coordinator with the Hellenic American Union Mr John Bardis, and consisted of two Phases. During the 1st Phase, Mr Bardis analysed the Written and Oral Exam strategies of the ECPE Examination (Michigan Proficiency) to the teachers of the school and answered their questions.
During the 2nd Phase, Mr Bardis conducted a Mock Speaking Test with students of the 3rd class of Proficiency, who are sitting the ECPE Exam in May-June 2014, and assessed their performance after completion of each stage of the exam.
The Webinar lasted 3 hours, and the experience and knowledge of Mr Bardis was valuable for teachers and students as it was back in November when he had visited our school to conduct again a seminar for teachers and students.
