Communicative Activities Plus
This workshop, which is a follow-up to a workshop conducted at the LMU in March, is aimed at teachers of all levels who are interested in improving learners’ self-confidence and supporting their enthusiasm and competencies to drive foreign language acquisition. The focus will be on communicative activities that can be used in the classroom for training the affective dimension of communication, teaching both vocabulary and grammar, equipping learners with chunks, improving their writing skills and practicing dialogues. During the workshop, we’ll try to cover different areas, experiment with different methods and reflect on their potential as well as challenges.
