    Best practice in a real classroom situation – grammar and vocabulary

    In this brand new workshop format, which includes a “lesson” with a group of real learners, you will have the unique opportunity to see how methods proposed really work in practice. We’ll start by analyzing a range of best practice activities for teaching grammar and vocabulary. We’ll be looking at methods and ideas for making “what” we teach more effective, memorable and at the same time fun to learn. A group of students will then join us for a short English lesson in which you’ll be able to observe a selection of these practical activities in a real classroom situation. After the “lesson” we’ll have time to exchange feedback and ideas. Come along and enjoy a new workshop experience – in which theory truly meets practice. This workshop is kindly sponsored by Ernst Klett Sprachen.

    Course no.: E581260

    Presenter: Gillian Bathmaker

    Free of charge · Registration is required in advance at www.klett-sprachen.de/fortbildungen · 25 places.
