American English Live offers three series each year of six Facebook Live professional development sessions for English language educators around the world. At the end of each session, participants can complete a short quiz to earn a digital badge.
American English Live Series 18 runs from September 6 to November 15, 2023. Series events take place every other Wednesday during the series at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Eastern Time from Washington, DC. You can check the local start time using this time zone converter, and note that Daylight Savings Time ends on November 5th in the US and, as such, your local broadcast time may be affected. The first two webinars in the series will explore integrating Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) in the EFL classroom, while the final four sessions will focus on developing learners' critical thinking skills:
