Gets you talking: Why English File works’
For many teachers, getting students to talk in the English classroom can be a challenge. With its uniquely motivating texts, topics and tasks, English File has given language learners the world over the confidence to communicate in English. This session will provide you with practical ideas on how to implement the English File methodology in your classroom, and get your students speaking with confidence in class.
Empowering your Students: Encourage your students to take their learning beyond the classroom
There’s been a lot of talk about technology in the classroom and its pros and cons, but what technology undoubtedly gives teachers and our students is options. For students, there’s the option to catch up on classes missed, the option to revisit things from class and the option to take their studies further and become independent learners. For teachers, there is the option to supplement our teaching with a range of resources. Headway 5e Online is an online platform that allows teachers and student to do all of this and more. In this session, we will look at the ways the online platform can be blended with your course book and workbook to enhance the learning experience and simplify your lesson planning with the Teacher’s Resource Centre.
