Nothing Stands Still for Long – Changing English
(Rob Dean, Pearson)
9:40 - 10:30, For All
Whether it’s technology, fashion, music or politics, nothing stays the same for long, and for some people, staying up to date can be a real challenge. Language is no exception, and all languages are in a constant state of evolution. This session will look at some of the latest trends in English – both new elements entering the language as well as old elements falling out of use. The talk will investigate examples of changing grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and usage, and will look at where this leaves when deciding what to teach in the classroom.
From Sparks to Fireworks of Creativity
(Jarmila Tomanová, Pearson/Ventures Books)
11:00 - 11:50, For Primary School Teachers
CLIL has become an inseparable part of English lessons in the last couple of years. Children are naturally curious about the world around them and they can easily make connections between subjects across curriculum. Especially with primary school learners we should take advantage of their unspoiled creativity to make the most of English lessons. How can we actually ignite sparks of creativity to make pupils learn without even noticing it? In this workshop we are going to have a look at practical techniques and activities to spice up CLIL lessons for primary school learners.
Can-Do Statements? Yes, you can!
(Danka Sekerková, Pearson/Ventures Books)
11:00 - 11:50, For Upper-Secondary School Teachers
When students come to the first grade of an upper-secondary school their knowledge of English covers a wide range of levels. Mixed-ability classes are challenging to teach in general and even more challenging when students need to reach the same level at the leaving exam (Maturita). One way to approach differences in knowledge is to guide each student to the objective step by step with Can-Do statements. Such small steps allow students to measure their progress more accurately. By applying a self-check and a self-assessment, students will become more independent and responsible for their own process of learning. During this seminar You will learn how to implement the above-mentioned methods to your English classes.
Widening the Vocabulary World
(Jarmila Tomanová, Pearson/Ventures Books)
12:40 - 13:30, For Lower-Secondary School Teachers
Have you been revising vocabulary with your students time and time again? And when you come across the same words a few days later, half of it is forgotten and the other half is only vaguely familiar. If this situation rings a bell, join this hands-on workshop presenting methods and activities which will help students establish long-term retention of vocabulary. We are going to discuss personalization together with other vocabulary-teaching strategies which enable learners to expand their mental lexicon.
Putting the ‘X’ Factor into Exam Preparation
(Rob Dean, Pearson)
12:30 - 13:30, For Upper-Secondary School Teachers
Few people really enjoy exams. Any motivation that is connected with exams is often extrinsic, frequently related to the pressure to succeed - and the fear of failure. But can we foster intrinsic motivation in the exam scenario? This session will look at some ways in which we might change candidates’ perceptions of exams for the better. We will show through a series of practical activities ways in which the exam preparation process can become more enjoyable.
It's What You Don't Say That Counts!
(Christopher Oliver, Professional Teacher Trainer)
14:00 - 14:50, For All
During this interactive and light-hearted workshop, we will highlight different ways of recognizing and controlling various types of body language – from gestures, stance, intonation and eye contact. We will explain how we use body language to express the way we feel and how we can recognize other peoples mood and feelings. We will also point out the potential risks when using misreading body language in social situations, and also introduce some new vocabulary and phrases commonly used for teaching.
