This is a folder of audio files of true personal stories told at The Moth, a nonprofit organization. T The audio files correspond to the stories published in the book All These Wonders: True Stories About Facing the Unknown. Taken together, the audio and closely transcribed text of the stories are good practice for advanced English students.  One of the stories from the book (told by an Afghan refugee in the US) is included in the folder. It's possible to get other text of the stories on request. See the "About these files" document in the folder.

Team Up 2 Teach: Education Collaboration Platform

Team Up 2 Teach has created a beta version of their education collaboration platform idea to test out in Athens and beyond through August.  The idea is to encourage teachers and NGOs providing non-formal/informal education programs to SHARE what they are doing, HOW they are doing it, WHY they are doing it - in order to leverage our collective knowledge and human resources to raise the quality of our programs and learning outcomes of our students - together!   There is so much incredible work going on that can inspire, encourage, and empower teaching peers to address their daily challenges (lesson planning, classroom management, student engagement, student growth and progress) to improve their practice.   If you are a teacher or program director in this space, please consider reaching out and contributing to their pilot.

Unfortunately, the alphabet section is in Greek only, and throughout, there is no transliteration into Arabic letters. But this could be helpful with the aid of a teacher. Audio files, available at the same site, could help.
