Systems in Vocabulary Acquisition and Production

(Navot Laufer)

It started with a discussion about language with my mother-in-law: what was more important, grammar or vocabulary? For her, grammar was more important because it is logical and systematic while vocabulary is chaotic and arbitrary. I said it was a nonsense question. 

However, is vocabulary truly chaotic and arbitrary? Are there no vocabulary systems? In this talk we will look at some of the systems that underline vocabulary.

Our ability to process words in our ‘mental word depot’ (our vocabulary) facility is truly staggering: we are able to manage huge amounts of information in less than blink of an eye and our failure rate is surprisingly low. In fact, our ‘data management system’ is so efficient that it is inspiring the design of computers and data management systems specifically. To illustrate how this is done, we will look at similarities between some vocabulary systems and management concepts in global enterprises such as Toyota, Amazon, Facebook, Ikea, Google and more.

Business English - Teaching is not enough! 

(Navot Laufer)

When we get down to business, vocabulary and grammar, listening and speaking skills are essential but not enough. They must be combined with business skills such as participating in meetings, giving presentations or negotiations. Task based learning and role play are effective techniques to ‘put it all together’. The teacher’s task here is, first and foremost, to set a task and a safe environment for students to practise business skill in the class and then provide genuine feedback on their performance.

In this workshop, we will explore these techniques as well as sell or buy things and do our best to get the best deal…

Essential Teaching Principles you (might) have forgotten 

(Danka Sekerková)

Make your adolescent students learn the most while you as teachers do not waste your time, nor your energy – these are in my experience the very basic and very simplified principles that contribute to bilateral classroom satisfaction when both you and your learners leave the lessons feeling it was worth it. In this session we are going to look at useful techniques that promote vocabulary acquisition and its long-term retention, ideas how grammar explanation and practice can be made more meaningful and fun through engaging context and multiple media channels and finally share views, experience and tips on limiting your preparation time to minimum.
