Tanja Murphy-Ilibasic: English for Pre-Schoolers: Position Yourself for the Market

Early language acquisition has never been in more demand and is a potentially lucrative field for trainers with a structured, goal-oriented approach. This workshop aims to provide thought-provoking tips and insights into how to structure your classes, what content suits you best and the challenges of working with this age group. A range of activities will be introduced and provided for your own use. Be warned: there will be singing, dancing and other such wild things, so please remember to bring a good mood and a sense of humour along with you – both immensely helpful things when working with pre-schoolers!

 

To maximise the benefit of the workshop, there will be 3 voluntary pre-workshop assignments to complete beforehand.

Ian McMaster: From Theory to Practice: Using Business English Tips at Work

One of the biggest problems in business English training is helping clients to move from learning in the classroom to improving their communicative performance at work. A recent series of articles in Business Spotlight, now available as an e-book, tried to help in this respect by giving readers specific tasks to carry out at work and asking them to reflect on their performance. The aim is to create a learning cycle that leads to more effective and appropriate communication. In this workshop, we will look at this learning cycle, present relevant activities and discuss the effectiveness of such an approach.
