Coffee Break Spanish has won a European Award for Languages. The award recognises “creative ways to improve the quality of language teaching, motivate students and make the best of available resources”. It’s a Europe-wide initiative supported by the European Commission. The UK co-ordinator of the initiative is CILT, the National Centre for Languages. In total 15 initiatives were recognised involving language-learners of all ages. According to the judges, “the success of Coffee Break Spanish across the world shows that podcasting can promote language awareness and competence regardless of geographical location”. Kara and I will be at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on 20 November to accept the award. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support of Coffee Break Spanish, and we’re looking forward to the new season beginning in a few weeks.
