    Teaching English through English?
    Approaches for lower-level monolingual and multilingual classes


    These days lower-level English classes are often multilingual, with learners whose mother tongue may be German or another language. This creates both interest and challenges. How nice, for example, that a coursebook ‘breakfast survey’ has a genuine communicative purpose, because our multilingual learners eat different things for breakfast! But we are also met by seemingly irreconcilable wishes in this type of learning context: Learners who do not understand much German or even if they do, don’t find it helpful to have their English learning mediated through the German language, Learners who have joined the class with expectations that German will be the classroom language. Our challenge is to use and encourage as much English as is practicable. This will require us to develop good classroom routines in English, to gently and gradually move our learners away from mechanical, thoughtless translation and to make new and creative use of their mother tongues in our lessons. At the end of the workshop you will leave with concrete and practical suggestions.

    Mindfulness is an ancient concept as well as a modern trend. Its benefits for education and learning are well researched, and mindfulness-based techniques are being implemented in more and more classrooms. In this workshop we’ll explore what mindfulness means, what a mindful meditation practice might involve, and how developing mindful skills can help us and our students to pay attention well and to communicate more effectively.

    Your trainer: Jo Westcombe, teacher of English and of yoga, who has begun to tread the path beyond the physical and breathing exercises of yoga towards a regular meditation practice

    Your room: 2.151, second floor at Gasteig

    Your take-away: hopefully some new insights, as well as some practical ideas and resources for integrating mindful moments – in and out of the classroom
