Agenda: The Magic of Words – Enhancing Effective Vocabulary Learning (60 min)
Teaching and developing students’ range of vocabulary is a seemingly never-ending task. But, by focussing on word-building, collocations, chunks and making students active participants in their own vocabulary learning through the use of context, we can speed up vocabulary learning and develop greater language awareness. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll explore ways in which National Geographic Learning’s Close-up series exploits these different principles to help speed up vocabulary learning and develop greater language awareness.
Coffee Break (20 min)
Sowing the Seeds for Success – Teaching English to Young Learners (60 min)
We want to set our students up for success in their lives, in their future; and their education is vital to that. The key message is that as teachers we need to prepare and educate students to the highest level as the future is in their hands. We need to set them up for success in school and success in life. By no means is this a journey they go on by themselves, they need the guiding hand of the teacher to help them be prepared. In this practical session we’ll look at three key areas for teaching young learners which can help sow the seeds for future success.
