Come learn how affective learning can engage and empower your students’ learning and your teaching.

Join me in a journey with lots of play, imagination, and curiosity. Destination: language learning ownership.

The Five C’s of Grammar – Thinking Grammatical Structures More Critically - Workshop

As stated by Diane Larsen-Freeman in her Grammar Dimensions, the teaching of grammar might at times be downplayed if too much emphasis is placed on communication only. One must keep in mind, however, that if our goal is to enable students to become successful communicators in English, a crucial means to this end is to teach them to use grammatical structures. Based on and adapted from five simple critical thinking strategies as described by Rob King, co-author of Inquiry: A Student Handbook for 21st Century Learning, this highly hands-on workshop will explore ways to help students become aware of other dimensions of grammar – with a special focus on the English verb system - by having them look at it more critically and expand their depth of thinking it.


11)   Ana Lídia Lima & Mariana Bayma

 Making your coursebook more appealing to Young Learners - Workshop

Moving Beyond the Intermediate Plateau - Workshop

While there is an agreement as to what lower levels need to know, there is no overall consensus as to which items are “advanced”.  This workshop aims at providing teachers with practical ideas for teaching upper levels.

Teachers will be able to take a look at research done on what to include on an advanced syllabus and how to organise and grade learners. Additionally, we will look at some noun phrases and noun-based structures and how they are used in real life. 

In order to help learners leave the upper-level language plateau, teachers must be fully aware of what exactly to demand from them and how to make their learning profitable.

Technology in the classroom: promoting teacher efficiency and student engagement - Demonstration

Presentation about the use of technology and especially the use of slides as a key tool in the classroom. The presentation will promote Google Slides and other Google tools as a way of promoting teacher efficiency and student engagement.
