MEC in Russia: Denis’ School training report


MEC Training Assistant, Steph Earnshaw, writes:

We’re delighted to announce that Denis’ School in has recently started using Macmillan English Campus. Mike Green and I went out to run the MEC training sessions which were held at their St Petersburg school from the 20th to the 21st of July. Teachers and administrators came from as far away as Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod to learn about using MEC in class, course building and administration.

We also took the opportunity to speak to Irina Budtova, the Director of Studies, and capture some of her thoughts on video. Here she tells us a little bit about Denis’ School and why they decided to adopt Macmillan English Campus.


In this next clip Irina tells us about how Denis’ School plans to integrate MEC into their existing courses.

Irina and her team have already started building MEC courses to accompany their current programme of study. In this way MEC courses will be ready for students when the new term starts in September.

Thank you to all those who attended the sessions. We’re really looking forward to hearing from Irina and her teachers on how everything is progressing!
