Modules Description

Module 1. June 21 (Wednesday)  14.00 - 17.15.

Pronunciation with (not only) young learners

Pronunciation does not seem topic No.1 in EFL, especially with young learners. They are thought to imitate the sounds of English pretty well. However, some practising is quite essential. Teachers don’t plan pronunciation activities often; they say "it’s a waste of time" and "I don’t think much about pronunciation exercises", which is a pity. As a result, young learners grow into adults with unintelligible speech and mispronounced words.
If you don’t know how to work on it, this workshop is right for you!

You will learn a lot of tricks to eliminate making incorrect sounds, to follow the intonation rules and to keep the pronunciation routine. Although this course was developped for young learners, the techniques can be successfully used with allcategories of students who need pronunciation impovement.

Module 2. June 21 (Wednesday) 17.45 - 21.00

Topic Books – tool to get, keep, store and retrieve knowledge                        

Topic (project) books enormously increase students' interest in working with foreign language and facts. It is a wonderful way of attracting your students for new forms of work with information, facts, knowledge and manual skills. Any topic can be covered in topic books, which suits many ideas of CLIL, science, history,  storytelling, etc.
Some art techniques enable students to deal with vocabulary, structures, functions and grammar together with attributes such as co-operation, organization, multiple intelligences, presentation skills and many others. You will see a few examples of those project books.

Any level, any subject, but mostly English!

Module 3. June 22 (Thursday) 9.00 - 12.15

Classroom management and classroom language, transitions

Classroom managements is one of the key issues in teaching young leaners.  Teaching a foreign language surely requires some aspects to be considered: how to manage a group of children accommodating the communication in a foreign language as naturally as possible; how to organise the space, time and activities so that the students get the most of the process. Classroom routines help them get used to the process enormously, can we, teachers, establish them in our groups?

Communication Skills

Some small communication games enable students  to use communicative structures in a natural, lively context. Students solve various tasks in various situations that provoke a certain kind of oral involvement from them. They practise using messages without realising they are exchanging ideas in a foreign language. The sub-consciousness of this procedure is very beneficial in the learning environment as the students do not need to think about the language much.  These techniques can be easily adjusted to meet the needs of allcategories of learners.

 Module 4. June 22 (Thursday) 13.15 - 16.30

Teaching English in mixed classes

The course is designed to help teachers offer one activity in various ways. Basic skills – listening, active communication, pre-reading and reading skills and writing including the creative writing preparation can be offered to children of different ages and abilities. The teachers will try using the same topic with activities suitable for different levels, combined in a way to make sure the students can work in groups autonomously.
