If we asked this very question to a group of young kids, we would probably hear stories about ‘Why do you learn English?’, we might hear about…Well, I don’t know. I have never asked.
On daily basis, it is just not necessary. The parents bring their children to the school, I take them to the classroom and it is my job to make sure they stay in there and spend the time productively, learning a language.
But what do they really think about learning a language? Why do they want to learn it? Do they want to learn it? Do they even think about it? Or do they continue coming because their teacher smiles and laughs a lot, they made friends with the other kids and what happens in-between ‘Hello’ and ‘Good-bye’ is appealing enough. And, yes, because mum keeps bringing them. I do not know but I am on a mission to find out.
In this session we are going to look at what kids have to say about studying a foreign language, what the sources of their motivation might be and how to tap into them to make the lessons more effective. Plus the top 5 most popular activities, as voted by the kids.

This session will examine a lesser-discussed area of being a digital teacher – the skills to be a productive digital citizen. We will look at practical frameworks of productivity that teachers can adopt and consider best practices for integrating digital tools to better organize our time and resources. We will also explore how to protect the safety and health of our students and ourselves. This will include the legal responsibilities of being digital role models, with a focus on issues such as online privacy, intellectual property, and students’ digital wellbeing. Finally, we will review a framework developed to guide teachers along their professional development regarding digital teaching in the wider context of education.

Whenever we write we have to consider the audience, our purpose for writing and the means we are using to communicate our words, be that paper and pen essays, via the computer as an email or as an online blog available to all.

Blogging is an excellent way for individuals or institutions to communicate their area of expertise to the outside world or to others with the same passionate interest, which is why many academics consider starting one up. But it isn’t really the same as writing an academic paper. Or shouldn’t be at any rate.

In this session we will look at some of these differences with a view to making sure that we can support academic writers in this less formal context and ensure their blogs will be accessible, interesting, inspiring and motivating. Whatever the topic.

After months if not years of learning, it all comes down to one defining moment: The Big Day, the day of the exam. Not surprisingly, our students find the run up to exams stressful and don’t always perform at their best. In this session, we’ll explore various ways in which we can help our students prepare effectively for exams. We’ll look at how we can build revision into the whole academic year, how we can help students in the weeks leading up to the exam, and we’ll even look at some relaxation techniques to use on the day. One of the main reasons young people want to learn English is the role it will play in their future careers. That role is far more than simply allowing them to talk to colleagues and contacts in other countries, important as that is. English can be a fundamental part of achieving ‘career readiness’, which involves acquiring a range of skills through language development. In this session, we will consider what constitutes career readiness and look at how Speak Your Mind provides students with the tools they need for future professional success.

Delta/CELTA Trainer (Euroexam International), ELT author
Task-based Learning (also known as Task-based Language Teaching) has been with us for a long time and somehow still feels somewhat marginalised in general English teaching to adults and teens, perhaps largely due to the dominance of PPP and synthetic approaches to course design. This session will review what TBL / TBLT is, what is and is not a task, and will propose that the shift to online teaching over the last year actually allows for expanded possibilities for implementing task-based lessons rather than restricting them.

One of the key issues that people come to me for help with is time management. Learning to use the time we have available in the best possible way can help us to function much more effectively, and ultimately give us more time for ourselves and our families.

We tell stories every day. In the morning we tell about our dreams to our beloved ones. In the evening we tell about our day. Not only do we share our experience but also our feelings and opinions, our ideas and worries. Stories are an important part of our daily life since the dawn of the time. But what is a story when it comes to teaching?

For me storytelling is the time of special connection between me and my pupils. When I see their eyes looking at me in fascination; when I hear them asking ‘Anya, what story are we going to read next lesson?’; when I listen to them discussing the story afterwards, I can feel the true magic of stories.

Children telling stories are like flowers to me. Like a tiny seed growing into a beautiful flower their speech is developing. In my session I am going to show you how to bring traditional stories to life. On the example of ‘The enormous turnip’ I will share with you some tips on how to make stories more accessible to very young learners and how to encourage children to retell stories.

Or do they continue coming because their teacher smiles and laughs a lot, they made friends with the other kids and what happens in-between ‘Hello’ and ‘Good-bye’ is appealing enough. And, yes, because mum keeps bringing them. I do not know but I am on a mission to find out. In this session we are going to look at what kids have to say about studying a foreign language, what the sources of their motivation might be and how to tap into them to make the lessons more effective.

      When students speak, they produce all sorts of language - perfect, almost perfect or not good at all. This language emerges in the stream of unplanned speech. We will examine and practise giving feedback that doesn't only correct but also helps students reach a higher level of production.

      Do you manage your time, or does it manage you?
      Rachael Roberts
      One of the key issues that people come to me for help with is time management. Learning to use the time we have available in the best possible way can help us to function much more effectively, and ultimately give us more time for ourselves and our families.
      In this session I will look at the key reasons why we may feel that we simply aren’t getting enough done, despite feeling exhausted at the end of the day, and give you some practical strategies to help you manage your time, and crucially your energy, more efficiently.

      Growing language competence with story seeds
      Anna Merkureva
      We tell stories every day. In the morning we tell about our dreams to our beloved ones. In the evening we tell about our day. Not only do we share our experience but also our feelings and opinions, our ideas and worries. Stories are an important part of our daily life since the dawn of the time. But what is a story when it comes to teaching? For me storytelling is the time of special connection between me and my pupils. When I see their eyes looking at me in fascination; when I hear them asking ‘Anya, what story are we going to read next lesson?’; when I listen to them discussing the story afterwards, I can feel the true magic of stories. Children telling stories are like flowers to me. Like a tiny seed growing into a beautiful flower their speech is developing. In my session I am going to show you how to bring traditional stories to life. On the example of ‘The enormous turnip’ I will share with you some tips on how to make stories more accessible to very young learners and how to encourage children to retell stories.

      They can write beautifully! The magic of anticipation and feedback
      Tatiana Polovinkina
      Is writing a ‘Cinderella’ of teaching? A poor relative in a family where everything revolves around the mighty stepmother, grammar? I suggest saving this neglected girl by using a few simple and smart techniques for task-setting and giving feedback. Writing emerges as a key skill online – let’s explore its potential!

      Writing Stories for Cambridge
      Natalia Borisova
      Story writing is included into a number of internationally recognized tests such as the Cambridge English A2 Key, B1 Preliminary, B2 First qualifications. To prepare learners for the exams effectively teachers need to be well acquainted with the task requirements. In the session we will speak about the assessment of this writing task. We will also look into possible ways of helping students to prepare for story writing successfully.

      Implementing Task-based Learning in the Online Classroom
      Neil Anderson
      Task-based Learning (also known as Task-based Language Teaching) has been with us for a long time and somehow still feels somewhat marginalised in general English teaching to adults and teens, perhaps largely due to the dominance of PPP and synthetic approaches to course design. This session will review what TBL / TBLT is, what is and is not a task, and will propose that the shift to online teaching over the last year actually allows for expanded possibilities for implementing task-based lessons rather than restricting them.
