Even though the 21st century has now come of adult age, the need for 21st Century skills is more pertinent than ever. Our learners require the skills that will enable them to survive and success in this ever-changing world. Referring to the Framework for 21st Learning and the 4Cs, this workshop will investigate how English teachers can provide the perfect springboard to promote and develop the essential 21st century skills beyond language competence which our learners critically need.
