(along with a warm cup of soup & a cool glass of champagne!)
followed by the AGM/ Annual meeting for Eltas members
Things to Do with The Back of the Book & Technical English
Date: Saturday, January 17th
Time: 2-5:30 pm followed by AGM (Annual Membership Meeting)
Venue: Euroakademie, Olgastrasse 86, Stuttgart
One workshop..two topics!
1) Things to do with the Back of the Book (90 minutes)
After the last unit of the book there are inevitably those pages containing the grammar reference, writing bank, irregular verb tables and other such material that to many students (and teachers!) often appear as a boring, mysterious and under-used black hole. These pages however contain reams of valuable material just waiting to be exploited. This highly practical session will therefore look at ways of putting the back of the book to good use with a selection of easy to prepare interactive activities – many of which were most likely never intended by the coursebook author!
2) Technical English – Technically Speaking… (… and listening, reading and writing…) (90 minutes)
Easy to prepare, student-centred, multi-skilled, highly versatile… do these describe the sort of classroom activities you like? If so, come and join us for a selection of highly practical ways of adding a bit of variety and enjoyment to your Technical English course.
Every teacher will receive a teacher’s set of a course of their choice. Please see Angela at the event.
