    It is a pleasure and a challenge when we are offered a course without a coursebook. A pleasure because we can shape the course to suit ourselves and our participants. But a challenge in that we need to think not just of next week's lesson but of what we are going to teach in a whole series of lessons, and about what our participants will have learned as result of being in our course. In this workshop we will look at approaches to whole course planning. The workshop will enable you to put your ideas together effectively in a course outline that will help you to teach a set of coherent, linked lessons.

    Make them talk

    How can we enable and encourage active communication in the language classroom?
    We will look at a range of activities that stimulate speaking and are fun. We will also consider what a positive learning environment should look like. And most importantly: how can we improve our learners' fluency and make them speak English with confidence?

    Read Your Way to Better English

    People keep saying that readers are a useful and valuable tool for learning English, but how exactly do they help?  More importantly, how can you, the teacher, make best use of them to maximise their value? In this hands-on, practical and fun session we will look at ways to exploit readers to encourage learning in a varied and motivating way. The workshop introduces participants to the reading roles and how students interact based on reading a story. At the end, you will be able to run your own Reading Circle and know which materials are available to use. We will also cover the importance of reading to the learning of English.

    What does a word really mean?

    Words are the building blocks of a language. The more words your students know, the better they'll be able to communicate.

    MELTA's Sue Morris will lead this hands-on workshop where you can find out what knowing a word really means. You'll go away with a lot of vocabulary activities to use in your classroom.

    If you're planning to stay for the AGM at 4 p.m., there will be sustenance in the form of coffee and cake!
