More Than Words
In this talk we will look at ways of bringing visuals into the business English classroom.
Images, video clips and infographics can all add a bit of colour to our business lessons. We can also use them to present new structures and vocabulary, to help students put this language into practice and as a springboard for lots of great discussion. During this session – drawing on examples from In Company 3.0 and other sources - we will look at a variety of practical exercises that will add fun and lots of effective learning to your business English classes.
In this talk Mike shares some of the lessons he has learnt (usually the hard way!) from teaching English as a foreign language. He takes us back to his own initial training in Manchester and the years spent teaching in Milan. He shares those special moments when things didn’t always go according to plan and help was required. Together we will then look at what difficulties teachers face in 2017 and what help and support is available to overcome those difficulties.
Mike Riley as Teacher Engagement Manager, is involved in all of the aspects of teacher support, development and training.
Mike spent 15 years working in Italy as an English teacher, Director of Studies and finally Director at International House Milan.
