 Breaking News!; Article in Walla about the new elective, International Communication in English: מגמת אנגלית חדשה לתלמידי 5 יחידות בתיכונים (posted Aug. 15, 2014)

As of September 1, 2014, more than 700 teachers had registered their interest in taking the 60-hour teacher training course in the Art of Communication. There are far more teachers interested than there are spots in the course. Nevertheless, we have decided to keep registration open. The process of selecting the teacher most able to implement the program will require the completion of a separate form (one signed by your principal, the form will be posted here in the next two weeks). The teacher training course will most likely run from January-the beginning of July, 2015.  -Jennifer Sternlicht, the National Coordinator of International Communication in English, at starlightfam@gmail.com
