The workshop covered there areas that EFL teachers unavoidably face in their daily work:

- dyslexia

Pronunciation

The hardest task in teaching pronunciation is to make sounds meaningful and relate to something tangible.

What a brilliant idea to connect them with colors!

Dyslexia

Sadly, dyslexia is seldom recognized by practicing teachers as a disability. Teachers often are upset, angry or prefer to ignore students who are making too many mistakes in writing or cannot read well. To be able to deal with dyslexia and offer the  dyslexic students the care they need, teachers need special training. At least to understand what is happening in the minds of such people.

Dyslexia has to be approach in a variety of ways, including physical movements.

Storytelling

Storytelling has always been important due to its tremendous role in developing not only language and communication skills, but also personality. Being well-spoken is essential for a successful career building, happy family relations, and quality social life. One of key skills in storytelling is building a clear structure. This, unless  developed in in childhood, remains a challenge throughout the entire life.  
Having characters of the story as physical objects can help a lot, because learners can clearly see how they are moving in their story from scene to scene, from character to character, from object to object.

Sylvie Doláková has designed sets of similar magnets for several popular fables. They can be ordered with discs that contain printable handout, songs and music for class performances. 
*****
Can you imagine that all this - and a lot more- was covered in the course of just one session! Sylvie Doláková is amazing in her ability to deliver information, interact with the audience and manage activities.
