Recipe for 21st Century Learning (Špinková Markéta, Bohemian Ventures)
Do your students read enough? Or do they consider reading books boring and slow? We all agree reading books is an important part of learning and personal development. We would love to help our students make a daily habit of reading varieties of texts, and recent survey research indicates there is a need for students to do so. Through reading English books students develop their reading comprehension, get acquainted with crucial titles of English and world literature and use English for a real life experience. So how can we help students get used to reading in English? In this workshop we will try practical activities which integrate reading books into language lessons for various age groups.

How do we move from teaching to using? (Phil Warwick, PEARSON)
Do your teenage students automatically change learning styles when they enter their English classroom or are they approaching the lesson just like any other subject? With language testing firmly rooted in performance and what a person 'can do' in English, there is a danger that they can be too passive and that the learning environment is a controlled monolingual study resource rather than an area for active task-based learning. In this session we'll look at how to move from one to the other.
Adventures in English, (Phil Warwick, PEARSON)
Children learn through playing, exploring and experimenting. What we do in the formative years should provide a solid foundation on which to build in later years and with school subjects it's not only about the content, but also the approach - children who start by enjoying a lesson and being successful in it, generally continue to be engaged and participate more in subsequent lessons and this resultative motivation can make all the difference when it comes to progress. In this session we'll explore ways to play and learn in the classroom.
