Elena Merino. Let’s work together: co-operative learning in the primary classroom

Sat 4th March, 10.45-11.45, Room 0.2 

We see lots of trends in education and ELT, but one that is definitely here to stay is co-operative learning. What is it and how can we integrate it into the primary classroom? In this session will explore this type of methodology and provide practical ideas and tips on how to get your learners working together.

Sat 4th March, 15:30-16:30, Room 0.5

Let’s get creative. Using video to contextualize vocabulary and grammar is all well and good, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg! This session will provide a number of fun, original ways to exploit video that are guaranteed to get your students talking.

Brian Engquist. B2 Exam classes: finding the balance

Sun 5th March, 11.45-12-45, Room 0.4

Teaching a B2 exam course? Find yourself falling into the same old exam practice routine? Consistent practice and routine are key to successful exam prep, but variety is important too. So let’s look at some engaging tasks that will spice up your lessons while helping your students learn strategies and practice skills to meet the demands of the exam.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
