NATESOL presents:


 Special event hosted by The University of Sheffield 

'Prepare for Pre-sessional'

Speaker: Will Nash, University of Sheffield
Saturday 29th June 2019 10.00am-12.20pm

This talk and workshop is aimed at teachers working (or wanting to work) on pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes courses this summer or in the future. The session will provide some practical guidance about teaching on, sometimes intensive but well-rewarded, pre-sessional EAP courses.

The talk will cover how to:

  • Approach EAP from EFL
  • Integrate the studentsí future studies
  • Combine academic skills with language work
  • Create tasks with little resources
  • Find useful resources
  • Focus on certain skills needed as a teacher in EAP

Suggestions will be made and shared from teaching on, managing and observing summer programmes for over 15 years.

The follow-up workshop will allow time for discussion of ideas, sharing of practice and resources and to plan something useful for this summer and beyond.
