ELTAF / Oxford University Press Online Workshop (Zoom) with Lis Winterwerb-Cossons (OUP) – This event is now full!!!


The Nuts and Bolts of Grammar
If you are an English teacher you will know that the grammar system is one of the vital sets of language “nuts and bolts” that everyone needs to become a competent user of English. Our students expect to learn some grammar, but just “going through” the rules is neither inspiring for learners, nor does it lead to effective usage or successful communication. Grammar needs to be brought to life and embedded in real situations. In this workshop, we will investigate the rationale behind grammar approaches and become familiar with lively ways of introducing and using grammatical structures in meaningful contexts.

Let’s Get Talking – successful speaking with a smile!
How can we, as teachers, get all learners to communicate freely and confidently in English whilst also having fun? In this session, we will take a closer look at a fundamental aspect of language learning which is often overlooked – pronunciation. We will investigate some of the different aspects of this topic and explore ways in which we can integrate pronunciation into lessons and self-study. By using activities, phonetics charts and sound bank videos we can help students to conquer those “tricky” words and sentence structures supporting them on the path to successful speaking!
