TASK-BASED LEARNING. MORE OR LESS
Task-based Learning as a recognised methodology finds its place within the communicative language teaching framework. However, as its title suggests, the task takes centre stage. Most teachers will have used task-based activities in their classes, to a lesser or greater degree, probably without even having been aware that they are doing so.
This talk will look briefly at the theoretical framework of TBL and then will move on to show how it can be used and adapted to fit almost any EFL teaching situation. I will share my own experiences of TBL lessons which can follow the TBL framework in a more or less orthodox way.
11.30 – 12.30
Many of us may find it challenging to deal with conflict proactively because we lack fundamental conflict management and resolution skills.
This workshop will offer a range of tools and useful skills to help you handle conflict more effectively. What is conflict? What are the common causes of conflict? How do we navigate the intersection of logic and emotion? How can we avoid argument traps?
This highly interactive and experiential session will give participants a chance to learn the steps to conflict resolution and the tools to build and maintain close connections.
14.00 – 15.00
PERSONALISING BUSINESS TOPICS AND GETTING LEARNERS TO TALK
Giving learners plenty of speaking practice and increasing their professional self-confidence is one of the main goals in the Business English classroom.
Experience how Real Business English fulfils this
goal by trying out some of the activities aimed
at encouraging learners to talk about their jobs, departments and worklife. We will be working with material developed with input from real international companies. We will also discuss how to generally personalise business topics so that they are relevant for all students and why this approach is so motivating for learners
REVISING, RECYCLING & REVISITING LEXIS
While most teachers understand the importance of teaching vocabulary in chunks, they often need more practical tools.
The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to provide fresh ideas on how to revise and recycle lexical chunks your learners come across. Be prepared for a wide variety of activities suitable for different levels, ages and learning styles. No time to plan your lesson? There will be some “last minute” solutions which require a bit of thinking on your feet. And do not forget to bring your scissors – you might have to do some cutting!
