A workshop on listening skills
How many times have you been introduced to somebody and immediately forgotten his or her name? Do you find it difficult to concentrate on listening? Today, when we are all exposed to a multitude of visual devices it is difficult to concentrate only on a spoken word. Participants will be able to try out some activities that Evelina has developed to enhance students' listening skills.

Cell phone scavenger hunt
Since the introduction of cell phones, teachers have had problems in persuading students not to use them in the classroom. The aim of this workshop is to show various ways to use phones and mobile devices in the classroom. It is called "cell phone scavenger hunt" because this workshop's participants will be given various tasks to do with their mobile phones. If you have a cell/smart phone, please bring it along!
